Positive Ageing Indicators 2007
This Positive Ageing Indicators 2007 report is the first step in the establishment of a regular programme of social monitoring focused on older people. The aim of the report is to provide information on the overall wellbeing of older people in New Zealand. In most of the indicators, the terms older population and older people refer to people aged 65 years and over (unless otherwise stated) living in private dwellings (this is noted in the introductory section of each indicator). Private dwellings includes retirement villages, but not rest homes and hospitals.
