  • (2008) Values on a Grey Scale: Elderly Policy Monitor 2008

    Crétien van Campen (ed.)

    Ouderen lijken de laatste decennia steeds jonger geworden. Veel ouderen van nu zijn fysiek fitter en maatschappelijk actiever dan de ouderen van een halve eeuw geleden. Tegenover dit positieve beeld van ouderdom en ouder worden staan ook somberder beelden van ouderen die op hoge leeftijd hulpbehoevend worden en geïsoleerd raken van de samenleving. Ook de toename van het aantal ouderen in de komende decennia en de financieel-economische gevolgen daarvan voor de betaalbaarheid van de ouderenzorg en de AOW baren beleidsmakers zorgen. Genoemde veranderingen staan bekend als 'de vergrijzing', en waren voor het kabinet de directe aanleiding zijn visie te geven op het beleid rond ouderen en vergrijzing, hetgeen in 2005 resulteerde in de Nota '64' Ouderenbeleid in het perspectief van de vergrijzing. Het kabinet nam zich voor de resultaten van het ouderenbeleid te volgen door middel van een tweejaarlijkse Monitor ouderenbeleid. Deze proefeditie van de Monitor ouderenbeleid 2008 schetst een cijfermatig beeld van de ontwikkeling van de vergrijzing op de beleidsterreinen: arbeid, inkomen, wonen, gezondheid en zorg. Aan de hand van door het kabinet in 2005 geformuleerde streefwaarden wordt de huidige stand van zaken opgemaakt. De monitor komt in de plaats van de tweejaarlijkse Rapportage ouderen.

  • (2014) Generation R: risk, resilience, ready for ageing?

    Prof Jose Iparraguirre and Sujata Ray, Age UK Research Department

    This research report provides a uniquely informed view, via statistical analysis and qualitative research, of the cohort of people aged 50-64 living in England in 2014. Age UK conducted a statistical analysis of over 4,500 people aged between 50 and 64 who took part in the English Longitudinal Survey of Ageing (ELSA) between 2010 and 2012. It also carried out qualitative research which elucidated important similarities and differences in the attitudes and views across the cohort. Using a range of indicators across economic, health, social and demographic domains, the analysis resulted in seven distinct clusters showing widely ranging income, wealth and health across the age group. This report provides a uniquely informed view of this age group, which it has called "Generation R" to reflect their resilience, risk and readiness for ageing.
