The Master Plan for Aging outlines five bold goals and twenty-three strategies to build a California for All Ages by 2030. Beginning in 2021, the goals and strategies will be powered by over 100 action-ready initiatives that have already been adopted by state agencies for implementation, in partnership with stakeholders and the Legislature. These initiatives will be continually informed by the publicly accessible, user-friendly, and routinely updated Data Dashboard for Aging , which will track progress toward the Master Plan’s targets over ten years.
The Dashboard will be regularly updated and improved to monitor progress on Master Plan priorities over the next 10 years.
The Data Dashboard for Aging (DDA) has been updated with NEW data about long-term supports and services (LTSS) and caregiving; NEW disability status data on multiple topics, including the demographics dashboard; and MORE RECENT data on the following topics: Affordable Housing, Primary Care Shortage Areas, Life Expectancy, Suicide, Facility Complaints.
More updates are coming soon!

The Data Dashboard for Aging was developed in partnership with the Let’s Get Healthy California team at the California Department of Public Health and with the West Health Institute. Version 1.0 was launched on January 6, 2020. The dashboard will be routinely updated to reflect the most-up-to-date and reliable data. Additional indicators will be added based upon availability.
