Transitions in Living Arrangement Among Older Adults in Japan: Does Health Make a Difference

Publication Abstract

Brown, W.J., Jersey Liang, Neal Krause, H. Akiyama, H. Sugisawa, and T. Fukaya. 2002. "Transitions in Living Arrangement Among Older Adults in Japan: Does Health Make a Difference." Journals of Gerontology B: Psychological and Social Sciences, 57B(4): S209-S220.

Brown et al evaluate the hypothesis that poor health triggers a change in living arrangements among elderly adults in Japan. Data coming from a national probability sample of 2,200 Japanese people aged 60 or older were used and the effects of demographic characteristics, socioeconomic status, and health on changes in living arrangements were analyzed using multinomial logit regression analyses. Results show that poor health does trigger changes in living arrangement.
