About the projectShow/Hide content

The project ‘Ageing in a changing society’ established a life course research data infrastructure based on Swedish registry data from SCB and Socialstyrelsen from 1990 onwards.

On this basis it analyzes life courses and living conditions of the Swedish 50+ population and aims at facilitating projections of future late life courses and living conditions over the next 10 years for different birth cohorts, approaching different stages of late life.

 

Moreover, this research program aims to expand the boundaries of knowledge of ageing and takes into account the influence of previous lives as well as changing social structures, economic resources and living contexts of ageing people.

 

The analyses will focus on quality of life with a special emphasis on risk factors for disadvantage and exclusion in an inequality perspective.
