What Amenities Do North Carolinians Want As They Age? Weigh In

Posted on 04/30/22 by The AARP Bulletin

According to the 2020 American Community Survey (conducted by the Census Bureau), North Carolina’s population grew by 12 percent from 2010 to 2020, 75 percent of which came from a rise in the number of residents age 50-plus.

As part of its commitment to building Livable Communities, AARP North Carolina is asking residents to weigh in on what amenities they think are most important for livability: housing, transportation, health and wellness, open space, walkability or something else.

The “Age My Way North Carolina Survey” is based on surveys that states and communities across the country have used to help inform local and state decision-makers for the past 10 years.

The survey results will be shared at a statewide conference in September. Access the survey by visiting the Survey Link: https://states.aarp.org/north-carolina/take-the-age-my-way-nc-survey
