The Consortium for Aging Policy Research & Analysis
Affiliated with the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center and the UMaine Institute of Medicine
Supporting state and national public and private leaders with independent policy research and analysis on issues relevant to aging & older people
An aging state and nation hold opportunities for broader perspective,
inclusion, diversity, and justice
Long anticipated age-related demographic shifts are underway and policymakers at all levels of government in Maine and across the country, along with stakeholder organizations, businesses, agencies, advocates, and the public, are focusing attention on how best to adapt. Policy action supported by available evidence, new research, or thoughtful analysis is essential to ensure the economic opportunity, wellbeing, and quality of life that older people deserve as we age.
The Consortium for Aging Policy Research and Analysis (CAPRA) supplies a wide range of substantive and methodological policy expertise to address current and emerging aging population opportunities and challenges, and contributes to broader use of policy research and analysis in the fast-moving age-related policy landscape.
