New Data Chartbooks for National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants

A new series of eight chartbooks is now available in the Data Sources section of ACL’s AGing Integrated Database (AGID) website about the National Survey of Older Americans Act (OAA) Participants.

The NSOAAP data provide ACL and the aging network with information on outcomes that demonstrate the effect and overall quality of Older Americans Act Title III services. Service recipient demographics, as well as health and well-being indicators are also collected. The 12th National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants (NSOAAP) was collected in 2017.

Some fun facts from the data:

  • More than 20% of Homemaker (31%), Case Management (26%), Transportation (22%), and Home-delivered Nutrition (32%) clients are 85 years old or older.
  • More than 95% of clients across all six services report that that the people who provide the services are courteous.
