    Longer lives


    Policy responses to challenges linked with rapid population ageing, especially in middle and low income countries, require a clear understanding of the factors that influence the well-being and quality of life of older people. Comparative analysis of secondary data has the potential to highlight outcomes of good policy practices and illuminate what policy reforms and data improvements are essential for this purpose. This project undertook secondary data analysis of older people living in China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The research, involving Professor Maria Evandrou and Professor Asghar Zaidi, built upon the Global AgeWatch Index 2013, and will make a unique contribution in promoting scientific comparative research on issues of ageing and older people.

    This project was funded from January 2015 until December 2016.
