This article investigates the spatial distribution of aging communities of the Aichi Prefecture in Japan using a standard correlation analysis and bivariate local spatial statistic analysis. The results suggest that using both indices allows us to capture different types of aging communities in diverse contexts (e.g. depopulated rural areas, pockets of aging communities in urban areas, and growing concentrations of aging population in the suburbs). The analysis uses data sets aggregated at different areal scales, confirming the generally stable nature of the outcome, despite some scale sensitivity
