Setting the Agenda for Research on Aging in Developing Countries

Publication Abstract

Hermalin, Albert. "Setting the Agenda for Research on Aging in Developing Countries." Elderly in Asia Report No. 98-51. October 1998.

This paper sets forth a broad conceptual framework for addressing a wide range of issues in the demography of aging in developing countries. In addition it identifies and illustrates three special perspectives that should help guide research. These are cohort succession which can measure the degree to which the future elderly will differ in various characteristics from the current elderly; distinguishing function from form in intergenerational arrangements so that attention can be paid to the ongoing ac commodations family make to changing socioeconomic conditions; and intra-cohort changes that occur with aging and to achieve stronger causal analysis.
