Description

This study investigates the demographic characteristics of the ?oldest old? (people aged 80 and more). The European Population Committee of the Council of Europe decided to undertake this research, given that it is the fastest growing age group within the population and there is an increased realisation that the group has different needs and is different socially, economically and physically from the ?younger old? (ages 60 ? 79). The report describes changing age and sex structure, existing living arrangements and some of the socio-economic characteristics of this population group. It provides valuable material for policymakers since the subject is closely linked to issues such as rising health care costs, community care, institutionalised households provision, etc.
