AGing, Independence, and Disability (AGID) Program Data Portal

The AGing, Independence, and Disability (AGID) Program Data Portal is an on-line query system based on ACL-related data files and surveys, and includes population characteristics from the Census Bureau for comparison purposes. The four options or paths through AGID provide different levels of focus and aggregation of the data - from individual data elements within Data-at-a-Glance to full database access within Data Files.

Before you begin your query, please review AGID's Resources section with an "About AGID" overview, descriptions of data sources, and frequently asked questions (FAQs). Even experienced AGID users may find the Resources documentation helpful. At any time, you may select from one of the four options below and follow the system prompts. If you need additional assistance, please complete an AGID Support request from the link found at the bottom left of every AGID screen.

Version 2.64: 2019 National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants (NSOAAP) and Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program’s (LTCOP) National Ombudsman Reporting System (NORS)

This release includes the following updates:

  1. This release featured the addition of the 14th National Survey of OAA Participants data. Survey data are available in the Custom Tables section of AGID. Additional information related to the data is available in the Data Files section of AGID.

    In 2014, questions about sexual orientation taken directly from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) were introduced to the National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants (NSOAAP). The first year, the sexual orientation data were analyzed, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) found the responses to be so small and the standard errors so large that ACL was not confident in the reliability of the estimates and therefore did not make the data available for viewing or downloading.1 As is standard practice with many other federal surveys, ACL decided to collect data over five years to see if when combined, the data could be used to produce more reliable estimates.

    In 2018, ACL asked the statisticians at Westat (the contractors fielding the NSOAAP) to analyze five years of aggregated data (2014-2018) to see if a large enough sample size was created to reduce standard errors and provide reliable estimates. Westat found that only NSOAAP’s Caregiver survey had a large enough cell size and small enough standard error to provide a reliable estimate (less than 1 percent) of survey participants reporting that they are lesbian, gay, or bisexual. In 2019, an aggregated six-year data file (2014-2019) was analyzed producing an estimate with a relative standard error too high to report a reliable estimate.

    ACL is currently supporting an ad hoc panel of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on ‘Measuring Sex, Gender Identity, and Sexual Orientation for the National Institutes of Health.’ This panel is reviewing current measures and methodological issues related to measuring sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation in surveys, research studies, and administrative data. Once the recommendation report from this panel is released in December 2021, ACL will use the information to review and possibly revise or replace the current sexual orientation questions.

  2. Note: NSOAAP 2016-2019: Error Detected

    There is an issue affecting the age group stratification within the National Survey of OAA Participants (NSOAAP) Custom Tables data for the years 2016-2019. The only affected stratification is “Age Group”, located within the Demographics grouping for the following services: Home Delivered Meals, Congregate Meals, Homemaker, Transportation, and Case Management. The breakout of survey responses and frequencies based on “Age Group” is incorrect and should not be used at this time. No other stratifications are affected by this issue. A correction is expected by the summer of 2021.
    Please note that the NSOAAP survey data files located in the Data Files section have the correct age group data.
