The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Data Report provides a mechanism for communities to implement more customized programs through data comparisons of physical, social and health variables from multiple federal and state data sources for Massachusetts. The report details individual town data alongside of state averages, allowing for a comparison of how a town is doing relative to the rest of the state by each variable. Multi-dimensional indicators of healthy aging and healthy aging programs are identified along with GIS analyses that will enable communities to address local challenges and better allocate resources to those areas (physical, social and health) of greater need.
