Learn directly from the residents themselves how to best accommodate the needs of older adults in your community.


The United States’ population is aging, from state to state and in every neighborhood.  The U.S. Census projects that 1 in 4 Americans will be advanced in age by the year 2040. It has become increasingly essential for communities to plan for the growing older adult population now.

The Community Assessment Survey for Older AdultsTM (CASOATM) is a sound strategic planning and evaluation tool that provides the answers to understanding how older adult needs and strengths will affect your town, city, county or state.  Your CASOA results will give you confidence about planning for today’s older adults, and tomorrow’s.

Community Assessment Survey for Older Adults, CASOA

Developed by Experts

CASOA summarizes the key dimensions of community livability, drawn from the perspectives of older adults themselves. This national benchmarking survey also compares the responses of older adult residents in your jurisdiction to the opinions of others across the country.

Developed by experts in survey research and aging services, CASOA provides a clear description of the community’s readiness to serve the needs of the aging demographic. CASOA shows local governments and Area Agencies on Aging the dimensions of older adult life and the public services in most need of improvement.
