Survey Report: Preparing for the Next Generation of Older Adults 


Learn how you can prepare your community for the growing aging demographic. Download the 2022 CASOA white paper for never-before-seen insights and trends from older adult perspectives. 

The Community Assessment Survey for Older Adults (CASOA) gives government leaders insights from the aging population, which are more valuable than ever. As the aging demographic grows larger, community decision-makers will face new challenges. We mined our CASOA database to uncover these issues and investigated these topics in our new white paper. 

In this white paper, you will get information on:
  • Why older adults are working into their retirement years
  • Myths about older adults in the workplace
  • How to create a community that allows older residents to age in place
  • A State of Indiana CASOA case study
  • National trends on the aging population

More about CASOA: 

Developed by experts in survey research and aging services, CASOA summarizes the main dimensions of community livability from the perspectives of older adults. Jurisdictions from all over the US have conducted CASOA, creating a national database of over 35,000 older adult responses. The database allows you to compare results from your community to others across the country. Results show local governments, states, and Area Agencies on Aging their strengths and services in most need of improvement.

CASOA helps you develop informed plans to support healthy aging and sustain a thriving, age-friendly community.

“The [survey] will provide another valuable source of community input as we begin drafting a new Master Plan and Strategic Vision later this year … As we shift from planning to action, [the survey] will also provide benchmarks, allow us to track progress and make comparisons to other communities.”

City Manager, Kalamazoo, MI

“Polco's civic engagement platform has worked very smoothly for collecting verified community sentiment on a variety of issues. It has delivered community insights, made it easier for us to hear from more community members, and done so in a way that has been easy for staff to implement and use. The Polco team has been very helpful throughout the process.”

Tim Hannah
Mayor, Appleton, WI

“Polco has been very helpful in maintaining conversations and facilitating decision making progress. Decision makers are getting more input and conversations are being continued in the silence between meetings. This piece is important because it is easy for a community to forget that there are so many moving pieces to government, all of which require input from residents.”

Nina St. Germain
Engagement Coordinator, Bar Harbor, ME
