The purpose of this project was to conduct a statistically valid national survey of recipients of services under the Older Americans Act using survey questions designed in concert with states and Area agencies on aging. Questions were field-tested by states under the Administration on Aging (AoA)’s current performance outcomes measures project. Westat conducted telephone surveys on a sample drawn with the cooperation of approximately 150 area agencies nationwide. Two national surveys have been conducted, focusing on recipients that received specific services funded under the Older Americans Act. A third survey is being finalized at this time.
