Background to project
Background to project for social care services: A cross national comparison

  • Comparing older people’s social networks in 18 countries, including 5 non-European

  • Using a 50+ sample from the ISSP 2001 dataset

  • Key variables include contact with close and extended relatives, friends and social and community groups.


Objectives
Objectives for social care services: A cross national comparison

  • To compare older people's social networks in national countries;

  • To examine social support networks for older people in national countries, including support provided by partners and families;

  • To explore differences in typical social network patterns between selected countries;

  • To compare differences in social network patterns between men and women;

  • To identify support network 'types' and dominant cluster types within countries and shared between groups of countries;

  • To examine differences in older people's attitudes towards social support between national countries;

  • To examine if there is any association between national differences in social network trends for older people and patterns of paid work for this age group;

  • To examine if there is any association between national differences in social network trends for older people and social care policy patterns, as recorded by international bodies like the OECD, WHO and UN;

  • To consider the UK policy implications of the findings, with reference to policy interventions to sustain social support networks amongst older people and drawing relevant lessons from the experience of other countries.
