The experiences of long-term older immigrants are in many respects more similar to those of native-born older people than to those of their recenuy arrived counterparts. Because of these differences, the distinction between recent older immigrants (in the United States for ten years or less at a given point in time) and longterm older immigrants (in the United States for more than ten years at the same point in time) is important in the analyses that follow.\n City and state agencies will need to adjust to the challenges of providing services to a group that is more diverse, has fewer English language skills, and is more likely to lack the support of a spouse. Because new arrivals tend to be concentrated in a few regions of the country, resulting in older immigrants distributed unevenly across the country, some regions will bear a greater responsibility for this population than will others.
