Help Tell Your Story

In January, State Research fielded a major telephone survey in support of the AARP “Telling Our Story” initiative. Data was collected from approximately 29,000 50+ adults across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. A core set of survey questions were asked in every state that centered on people’s top concerns and interests. In addition, AARP state offices were asked to choose from a database of survey questions on topics that ranged from community issues to utilities.

The overall goal of this survey was to gather information on a state level on the needs, interests and concerns of the 50+ population and AARP members. This information will allow the states to demonstrate AARP relevance at the community level, share AARP’s total brand story and engage the 50+ population and our members in the work that we do for them.

If you are 50 or older and didn’t receive a telephone call, you can still participate in this important initiative. Tell us your story. Share with us any of the following:

  • What is the single most important problem or challenge facing those 50+
  • What kinds of things do you dream about doing?
  • What issues are of most importance to you? (e.g. staying healthy, adequate health insurance, staying in your home as you age)
  • What financial issues do you worry about most?
  • What consumer concerns do you have? (e.g. consumer fraud, deceptive business practices, deals and discounts)
  • What community concerns do you have? (e.g. alternative housing, accessible sidewalks, transportation)
  • What long term care concerns do you have?
  • What state budget concerns do you have? (e.g. education, public safety, health care access)


As we continue to connect at the local level, your comments, observations and opinions are welcomed. I encourage you to tell your story. Send responses via e-mail to aarpmo@aarp.org.
