State Budgets & Older Adult Services: 2009 AARP Minnesota Survey

This and Related Reports

The AARP Minnesota State Office, in collaboration with Aging Services of Minnesota and Care Providers of Minnesota, commissioned this survey to explore the views of self-identified, registered Minnesota voters. The survey explores funding for long-term care services, which services residents are willing to support via a tax increase, and the importance of caregiving.

Key results include the following:

  • More than half (54%) of respondents recommend the state increase funding for K-12 education; 47 percent recommend an increase in state funding for health care for the uninsured.
  • At least half of respondents support a state tax increase to provide four key services-education, transportation, health care, and long-term care.
  • Survey respondents support sin taxes, taxes on high-income earners, and closing loopholes and exemptions to avoid cuts in long-term care services for older adults and people with disabilities.
  • Six in ten respondents think it is important to support informal caregivers.

Woelfel Research conducted the telephone survey of 802 self-identified registered Minnesota voters age 18 and older in March 2009. Data were weighted to represent the actual distribution by age and gender among registered voters in Minnesota. For more information, contact Susan Silberman at 202-434-6339. (17 pages)
