PCA collects and analyzes data and undertakes research on aging issues, with a special focus on Philadelphia.
Research reports and analyses are posted in this section, including Neighborhood Profiles, which are analyses of Philadelphia’s Planning Districts. These explore the area’s demographics and services and resources available in each part of the city.
Information about research by other organizations, and current trends, can be found here.
PCA’s Planning Department includes a research program that is actively engaged in ongoing research related to program and policy, and that publishes articles on aging topics. The department is also able to provide data and resources for individuals working in the field. For information, contact Director of Research and Evaluation Allen Glicksman, PhD. at Allen.Glicksman@pcaCares.org.
