The United States of Aging Survey

A survey on seniors’ attitudes about aging


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 fourth year of The United States of Aging Survey, the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a), the National Council on Aging, and UnitedHealthcare set out to achieve an even deeper understanding of how older adults and their communities are addressing aging issues. These partners surveyed 1,650 U.S. adults 60 and older, and professionals who work closely with older Americans, including staff from Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), credit union managers, primary care physicians and pharmacists. The survey examines older adults’ attitudes on a range of issues such as health, finances and community support. The responses also reveal insights on how U.S. older adults are preparing for their later years, and what communities can do to better support an increasing, longer-living aging population.
