Summary


Using new data from the UK’s largest ever social survey, Understanding Society, PRFC and ILC-UK have uncovered startling preliminary findings about the ‘oldest old’ (aged over 85) and their levels of participation, wellbeing and health.
This new analysis, published as part of ESRC SDAI funded initiative is part of a major project exploring the financial dimensions of wellbeing and wider quality of life measures in older age. PRFC and ILC-UK plan to extend analysis of Understanding Society to look at the financial wellbeing of the oldest old.
