The proposed interdisciplinary research will provide detailed evidence on the association between socio-economic factors and physical and mental health and sense of well being of the older workforce (those in the later stages of their working life, above the age of 50) and highlight the direction of causation of this relationship. A number of issues will be investigated relating to differences between sexes with respect to the effects of socio-economic/and occupational status on the physical and mental health status at the later stages of working life. The size of the impact of the socio-economic and occupational differences in physical and mental health is crucial, not only for our understanding of the development of age-related diseases and disability, but also how these may be avoided by controlling contributory socio-economic factors.
