Aging and Disability Data Files
This section of AGID provides access to ACL-related survey databases, administrative and evaluation data, and special tabulations. Data are primarily available to download as Excel files with the exception of the National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants (NSOAAP), which is available in CSV, ASCII, and SAS formats.
Administration on Aging
- NSOAAP is a collection of annual national surveys of recipients of select Title III services.
The surveys are administered by Westat.
Their purpose is to obtain performance outcome measurement information, which is then used in AoA's GPRA plan and PART assessment.
The survey instruments focus on consumer assessment of service quality and consumer-reported outcomes.
The instruments also measure special needs characteristics such as physical and social functioning of the people who receive services.

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.

Current Program Evaluation Activities
- The evaluation is being conducted by ICFI to understand how tribes/organizations operate their Title VI Programs; what the impact of Title VI programs is on elders in the community; and whether Title VI programs that are sole-sourced funded have a different impact than programs that are funded through multiple sources. See also https://acl.gov/programs/program-evaluations-and-reports.
- The evaluation is being conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago to determin the efficacy of the LTCOP in carrying out core functions as described in the Older Americans Act, the long-term impacts of the LTCOP's for various stakeholders, what system advocacy among Ombudsman programs looks like, and effective or promising Ombudsman program practices.
