Elderly women living alone: an update of their living conditions

19.04.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This study presents the recent changes in the living conditions of elderly women living alone with a focus on the effects of recent pension reforms and active ageing policies in Europe. The study is largely based on a literature review and a desk analysis of the micro-data and information available at the European level. It is also well-grounded on qualitative analysis of good practices in active ageing introduced in recent years in six countries selected as representative of European welfare systems.
