Description:
Objectives and Context of the Study The basic objective of this study was to describe the major economic and social characteristics of persons aged 65 and over in Ireland and to assess the extent to which the aged are integrated into society at a reasonable standard of living. Thus, the issues of poverty, isolation and ill health among the elderly were central to our study, as was an assessment of the resources, both familial and State financed, which were available to deal with these problems. Some of our data were derived from published reports such as the Census of Population, the Labour Force Surveys and the Household Budget Inquiry. Most of our results are, however, based on a survey of a random sample of 1,713 persons aged 65 and over (and their spouses) carried out in 1977.
