Completed Projects

Project Title: Developing an Economic Living Standards Index for Elders

Living standards are proving to be an essential marker of economic status and well-being. By 2012 a theoretically based and statistically robust index of living standards for older people will be provided for use in population research (such as the NZ Longitudinal Study of Ageing), by Government research groups (such as the Ministry of Social Development), and for assessment use by community groups (such as Age Concern). This module will be used to assess and track changes in the living standards of older people. Limitations in standards of living constrain health and social participation and effective policy change to improve living standards requires early identification of deterioration. Measuring the living standards of older people effectively will provide a scientific basis for social policy advice to advance the independence and well-being of older people. The instrument developed in this project will equip researchers, policy makers, and community groups to assess gaps and recommend social and economic policies that ensure positive ageing and participation for older New Zealanders.
