Welcome to the
National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) oversees Administration on Aging (AoA) programs and conducts the National Survey of Older Americans Act (OAA) Participants. This is a national sample survey of programs on aging funded by Title III of the Older Americans Act. The purpose of this survey is to provide ACL/AoA with an effective method for collecting data on Title III programs. The results of this study help ACL/AoA meet its accountability requirements to the President. The results also demonstrate to Congress how well programs are achieving their legislative goals.

312 Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) have been randomly selected to participate in this study. A small sample of clients from each participating AAA will be randomly selected to complete a telephone survey about services they received during the past year. The services being evaluated include: Case Management, Congregate Meals, Family Caregiver Support, Home-Delivered Meals, Homemaker, and Transportation.

Westat is the research firm that is conducting this study for AoA. Westat will conduct confidential telephone interviews with clients selected for the study. All responses will be confidential and anonymous. The results will not identify any individuals, agencies, or providers.
