2006 Survey of AARP Wyoming Members

These five reports of findings from a single mail survey of 1,052 Wyoming AARP members during the summer of 2006 provides examination-in-depth of their experiences, views and concerns regarding identity theft, work and retirement, telecommunications and AARP’s role in these issues and their communities.

  • With 49 percent of those surveyed expressing concern about becoming an ID theft victim, 19 percent knowing someone whose identity was stolen and 6 percent having actually been victims themselves, most would like to see stronger penalties meted out to ID thieves.

  • While 85 percent have wire-line telephones in their homes, 57 percent have access to both landline and cellular service; among those with wire-line service, 43 percent know of other service providers in their communities, but 40 percent say there are none in theirs.

  • Among the 38 percent who have not yet retired, 56 percent plan to postpone doing so for as long as possible, and 28 percent of all respondents plan to continue working at their present jobs as long as they are able.

  • If offered in their local communities, members surveyed expressed the most interest in...

    • programs addressing important issues (36%), maintaining health and wellness (35%) and involving annual community service (34%)

    • workshops on Social Security (55%); Medicare (54%) and identity theft (53%)

This mail survey of 1,052 Wyoming AARP members was conducted from June though August 2006. Further information about the survey may be obtained by contacting Jennifer H. Sauer at 202-434-6207 or at jsauer@aarp.org.
