Description:
The aim of the study has both practical and policy implications affecting health inequalities amongst older persons in urban communities. The objectives are to assess the socioeconomic and health status and characteristics associated with difference in health status in older age. They explore the relative importance of factors in communities that may affect people’s health as they age and in particular the consequences of structural dimensions of neighbourhoods. While people are living longer the evidence indicates widening inequalities in advanced societies.
