Pima County's advocacy organization for seniors is asking Tucsonans to tell it what the key issues are with the aging population.
The Pima Council on Aging, known as PCOA, is seeking demographic data on the aging population and a wide range of topics, from health and health care to housing and transportation. County residents 60 and older are being asked to respond to the survey call.
"It covers a variety of subjects," says Jim Murphy, president and CEO of the agency. "We all know that the population is aging, intuitively, we know that and we hear about it."
"Each and every day, 10,000 individuals turn 65. Forty-three percent of the population in Pima County are boomers or 65 and older," Murphy says. "So it's imperative for us to find out what the needs are."
The anonymous survey will be distributed through town, city and county governments and other organizations. It also can be accessed on the PCOA website by clicking here.
