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.
