about this item

Contributed by economists, social scientists, and other researchers from Europe and Israel, the 33 chapters in this volume examine the degree of social and economic inclusion among aging European populations, based on the fifth wave of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). They discuss conceptual and methodological aspects of the measurement of different dimensions of social exclusion, including measures of material deprivation, accessibility to local neighborhood services, social deprivation, and macroeconomic indicators; possible sources and implications of of social exclusion, such as hearing impairment, cognitive or physical limitations, health and economic factors, oral health, the relationship of poverty to physical and mental health, and neighborhood deprivation; social cohesiveness, with discussion of social exchange patterns between older parents and their adult children, loneliness, care giving, immigrants, and social mobility; work and employment aspects, including assets and living standards, housing, self-employment, training activities, early retirement, and the use of computers; and health and health care issues like access, cost, waiting time, insurance coverage, chronic pain, mortality rate, long-term care, and long-term care insurance.
