Publications — Studies on population ageing and the status of older persons

The following publications are based on an institutional survey of ageing-related research in Europe that was carried out by the PAU in collaboration with the United States National Institute on Aging in 1995/1996. The goals of the survey were:

  • to take stock of ageing research in the ECE countries
  • to identifyinnovative research strategies and high-quality survey instruments that can be used in future research
  • to find out what type of cross-national ageing research should be initiated in Europe during the coming years
