2017 Senior Services Survey Report

Cobb County Senior Services commissioned a survey of its residents in Spring 2017 to discover their opinions in regards to a number of issues related to aging for both seniors (categorized as residents age 55 and above) and non-seniors (categorized as participants under the age of 55). The A. L. Burruss Institute of Public Service & Research at Kennesaw State University developed a survey instrument in conjunction with Cobb County Senior Services. The survey includes demographic information as well as sections relating to aging, housing, finances, safety, health, transportation, caregiving, and senior centers. Questions regarding aging, senior centers, and activities were asked of seniors only. This report provides details about the survey methodology, participants, and all survey statistics.
