Informing Productive Ageing in Australia Survey

Nationals Seniors is conducting a survey to better understand the needs and concerns of seniors across a wide range of areas of their lives.

The survey by the Productive Ageing Centre will ask several questions on issues ranging from housing, finances, health and employment.

This is a pilot survey for a project entitled What are the Needs and Concerns of the Over 50s? Informing Productive Ageing in Australia.

The findings will identify key issues of concern faced by seniors and will inform further research aimed at identifying the types of support required to overcome these concerns.

The survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete.
