The Center is developing a set of indicators and a composite index that measure how well the United States is doing to improve the prospects for long life; more specifically, the indicators will measure how the U.S. is doing on key actionable variables that can make a difference in improving the prospects for long-term well-being. The key indicators will range from child health to educational attainment and retirement preparedness. In January 2014, with funding from the New Retirement Forum, we hosted a meeting of experts at the Center to launch the project. Since then, we have continued our discussion of key indicators with faculty and other advisors and are seeking funding for the project. We envision an ongoing project, with a full report every five years and special annual issues in the intervening years. Adele Hayutin is leading the project.
