Living arrangements among older people: an overview of trends in Europe and the USA

Authors:
TOMASSINI Cecilia, et al
Journal article citation:
Population Trends, 115, 2004, pp.24-34.
Publisher:
Office for National Statistics

Compares the trends in living arrangements of older people in several European countries and the USA. Trends in cross-country variability in several factors that could account for these cross-national differences, including marital status, fertility, labour force participation and attitudes are also examined. In most countries the proportion of older people living alone increased substantially between 1970 and 1990. However the increase in living alone stabilised or even declined between 1990 and 2000 in most of the countries analysed indicating a possible reversal of the trend. Increases in proportions of married older women and reductions in the proportions childless may partially explain this. Considerable variability in both trends and levels of older people's living arrangements was seen especially between north-western and southern European countries. These variations mirrored contrasts in attitudes towards residential care and patient-child co-residence between the countries.
