COTA Federation - State of the Older Nation 2021 Report

13th July 2021

State Of The (Older) Nation

In 2018 the COTAs across Australia launched State of the (Older) Nation - a landmark report providing a snapshot of life experiences and attitudes of Australians aged 50+.

On June 24 this year, the COTAs launched the 2021 State of the (Older) Nation report. It tells a story of an older generation often experiencing ageism, who less often perceive themselves as happy, healthy, financially secure or connected to community than the previous report.

This research was commissioned by the Federation of nine Councils on the Ageing (COTA) across Australia - including all eight COTA state and territory organisations and COTA Australia - in order to understand the views, life experiences and needs of Australians aged 50+.
