Project

Classifying the older population: understanding the geography of opportunities and challenges in England

Goal: This project will develop an open access, multidimensional classification of the older population in England at a small area level, enabling more effective service planning and policy development.

The project will take place across three work packages: creating the geodemographic classification, ground-truthing, and applying the classification. As well as providing a robust descriptive account of the social and spatial stratification in the older population nationally, this research will demonstrate the importance of understanding this stratification for policy.

This is funded by the Nuffield Foundation
