Abstract

ELSA provides crucial evidence about population ageing that is relevant in a variety of policy arenas, from pensions and later-life working practices to health, well-being, transport, social engagement and cultural activity. It is also a valuable resource for academic researchers involved in economics, epidemiology and social science. An immense amount of detailed information has been collected from participants in the study, and a single report cannot do justice to the depth and richness of the data set. Accordingly, this report focuses on three issues that are of importance to public policy and scientific investigation:
intergenerational financial transfers and the distribution of wealth;
the evolution of lifestyles at older ages;
trends in obesity among older people.
