Is the ratio the same between singles and couples? How about those who lose a spouse while in Mexico?

We have been here 11 yrs. In our experience we have seen about 50-50. The spouse returns to States, often at children's request. Others who are healthy have stayed here . One thing that has effected this situation. Is that in some cases people had come down before the income requirement was changed. Some stay because they are now all their income  is one SS check , some  go back because they need Medicare.   As some have written it is very difficult to quantify how many leave and for what reason.  A couple we met early on said after 3 years, " we just have had enough of the Mexican experience"
