The AGing Integrated Database (AGID) is an on-line query system based on AoA-related data files and surveys, and includes population characteristics from the Census Bureau for comparison purposes. The system allows users to produce descriptive information in graphical or tabular form, at the level of detail most suited for their needs. The four options or paths through AGID provide different levels of focus and aggregation of the same data – from individual data elements within Data-at-a-Glance to full database access within Data Files.
