The AARP 2014 St. Louis Active Living Survey was conducted as a telephone survey among residents age 45 or older in St. Louis County and St. Louis City. The survey gauged residents’ level of satisfaction with their community/neighborhood, with specific regard to safety, exercise, and community events. The survey was approximately 15 minutes in length. The interviews were conducted in English by Precision Opinion from December 4 to December 30, 2014.
