This document contains the 57 reports generated by the State White House Conferences held in each of the states and territories, and by the Navajo Nation from September 1980 through June 1981 in preparation for the National White House Conference on Aging. Each report provides information on the total number of participants in local/state/regional level rural and urban forums held to gather public opinions and viewpoints about the concerns of older Americans and the capacity of existing human services and social institutions to serve the needs of the elderly. Issues of concern expressed by forum participants are prioritized, focusing on such topics as income, housing, ageism, transportation, health care, public benefits, utility costs, crime, legal services, nutrition, and employment. In addition, policy recommendations are provided for each issue. (NRB)
