COTA NSW Consumer Surveys

Consumer Surveys give us another way to engage our constituents

Each year we develop a Consumer Survey that explores important policy issues

COTA NSW Consumer Surveys give us another way to engage our constituents. Each year, we develop a Consumer Survey that explores important policy issues.

Our 2015 Consumer Survey is investigating attitudes to three key issues:

  • How people get around their communities and whether it’s easy for them to remain socially connected
  • The adequacy of the information and communication services provided by large organisations to older people

Once a Consumer Survey is concluded, the Policy Team analyses the data it yields and prepares a 50+ Report that contains our key findings.

COTA NSW has so far delivered two 50+ Reports, the first of which focused on health and wellbeing. Respondents were asked to identify factors that contributed to their ability to age well, and to provide information about their current levels of access to, usage of and satisfaction with health services, including general practitioners, mental health services and hospitals.

The second Report released in 2014 focused on how and where older people are living in New South Wales. This was prompted by findings from the previous year’s survey, which revealed that a growing population of older people – primarily women – are struggling to obtain and retain secure, satisfactory housing. We also sought to explore why they were living as they were, posing a series of questions about the decision-making processes they had undertaken in making their housing choices.
