NCOA: The United States of Aging

From our colleagues at NCOA: 

As 10,000 baby boomers turn age 65 each day1, the demographics of America are changing. This expanding group of Americans is redefining the senior lifestyle with unique perspectives on aging and the role local communities can play in helping them get the most from their future years.

For the third year of The United States of Aging Survey, the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a)the National Council on AgingUnitedHealthcare and USA TODAY conducted a survey of 3,279 U.S. adults to examine seniors’ attitudes on a range of issues such as health, finances, and community support. The survey results provide insight on how U.S. seniors are preparing for their later years and what communities can do to better support an increasing, longer-living senior population.

Explore the links to the right to learn about the key findings of this year’s survey and find tools to help raise awareness about issues important to seniors in your community.

See how your perspectives compare with those surveyed by answering a few questions from the 2014 survey here.
