Custom surveys: design, response statistics and results analysis


Some non-profit organizations need to survey constituents about how they view technologies, services they currently have or may need in the future.  Startups may want to post a survey to understand possible interest in a new product, service, or feature.  Current companies in the aging-related market segments benefit from fielding surveys that maximize public visibility and demonstrated reach in that segment. And any organization seeking additional funding may use a customer satisfaction survey to underpin the justification and business case.


Big data: Census statistical analysis, correlations and insights


Very large data sets often contain data that, when examined, offers insights about population trends and markets.  The US census household data, as one example, offers a treasure trove of information about family living circumstances, including grand-parenting and multi-generational housing. The US government hosts large publicly available subsets of surveyed information that can be combined with other data sources. For example, by knowing the population distribution by age in a specific market, it is possible to combine that information with an analysis of the geography’s distribution of assisted living communities, senior centers, and home care agencies. The results can be presented in spreadsheets, graphics or reports, as well as analyzed with recommendations about opportunities – and highlights of resource gaps.


Mapping: geographic information systems (GIS) analysis


A map is worth a thousand words. One of the more compelling ways to present information about resources, population concentrations and distances between resources should be to place the results on a map. Using publicly available mapping tools, a Geographic Information System can combine in-the-field collected data with other data sets, enable users to drill down by locality or resource type, and use that to better understand a community, market or to deliver a valued service.


Positioning and Message Review Workshop


Aging in Place Technology Watch can work with technology companies in a workshop format to define and polish a technology provider's positioning and value statement. This may be particularly useful to for startups about to enter the market for the first time or enter an existing market with a new product.


Technology Awareness Workshop for Aging-Related Businesses
