AARP Survey of Community Involvement

An RDD telephone survey of 1500 adults assessing their social involvement, organizational membership, community attachment, volunteer activities, social and political trust, interest in politics, and local political participation. By design, half of respondents were age 50 or older. Results challenge the claim that `social capital` is declining in the United States. A full report, `Maintaining America`s Social Fabric` was released nationally in December 1997.
