Future elderly living conditions in europe

Objective

The project is centred on a 2000-2030 forecast in a well balanced selection of nine European countries of the population aged 75+, classified by sex, age, marital status, together with health, family and socio-economic conditions. It will result in a quantification of living arrangements and an estimate of the future demand for nursing homes, both formal and informal core data other elderly-specific needs. Demography will provide a hard-core data basis and a highly efficient birth cohort approach. It should reveal large gender imbalances, important changes in the availability of potential support to the elderly and marked geographical contrasts. Comparable numerical results will lead to propositions for the adaptation of family and elderly policies, to be debated with policy makers and civil society at national and European levels.
