Boomers at Midlife: The AARP Life Stage Study

For this nationwide, representative survey, 2,127 baby boomers were asked to rate their current levels of satisfaction or dissatisfaction with - and short-term goals for - seven major areas of their lives: physical health, work/career, personal finances, religious/spiritual life; friends and family; leisure; and mental health. Comparable data were collected from 781 younger adults (ages 18-37) and 758 older adults ( 57+).

Telephone interviews were conducted from April 11 through June 15, 2002 by Princeton Survey Research Associates. A companion study of boomers and older adults was conducted using focus groups in Baltimore, MD, Charlotte, NC, and KansasCity, MO. For further information, please, contact Linda Fisher, Ph.D., of AARP Knowledge Management at 202/434-6304.
