National AAA Survey

Conducted regularly since 2007, the comprehensive AAA National Survey captures trends related to AAA services, funding, partnerships and new directions. The survey chartbook, toolkit, fact sheets and other related resources provide information for AAAs, policy makers, researchers, and other stakeholders to understand the evolving role of AAAs, benchmark services and advocate for funding or service needs.

This initiative is implemented by USAging with funding from the U.S. Administration for Community Living and in partnership with Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami University in Oxford, OH.

The Chartbook and resources below can help you tell the story of your AAA—and how AAAs across the country support the health and well-being of older adults.

Survey Chartbook 

The comprehensive Chartbook describes the findings of the latest National Survey of Area Agencies on Aging. You’ll find data on AAA services and partnerships to address complex needs such as housing and social engagement and how AAAs are advancing health equity in their communities. The Chartbook is packed with data on other service trends as well, plus details on AAA workforce, funding, partnerships and more.
