Community Living Survey of Older Anchorage Residents
The Anchorage Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) contracted with McKinley Research Group to conduct a telephone survey of Anchorage residents between the ages of 55 and 75 in spring 2021. The goal of the survey was to gather information for strategies to retain older residents in the community. A total of 300 residents participated in the survey; because younger respondents (aged 55 to 64) represent a higher proportion of people aged 55 to 75 in Anchorage, data was weighted by age to accurately reflect the population. Following are key findings from the survey.
