"The AdvantAge Initiative survey provides a 'data snapshot' of how well seniors are currently faring in their communities. Local groups then use these survey data to help build broader awareness about aging, inform service and other planning efforts, and spur needed community-wide action in the not-for-profit, public, and private sectors.
"
