Inequalities in Health in an Aging Population: Patterns, Causes and Consequences

19 05 2009

Health inequalities among the older population have important implications for a range of policy issues as our population continues to age. This multidisciplinary research will use unique data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing to examine the inter-relationships between the economic, social, psychosocial, and health circumstances of older people.

The aim is to provide a clear understanding of the extent of health inequalities among the older population, the determinants of these, and their implications for social participation and productivity. The core of this research will examine how inequalities in health are related to social, demographic, and economic circumstances. Specifically: how inequalities in health at older ages are related to economic position and how this varies with age and gender; how far economic effects are mediated by psychosocial factors; the impact of retirement on health; and the relationship between health inequalities and social participation.
