Abstract

This article reviews studies undertaken on issues of the elderly population in Europe and Estonia, and what their findings are. The authors also use the European Social Survey and its data to establish how the elderly assess their health situation, who their closest family members are, how they assess their economic coping, opportunities for participation on the labour market, and how active they are in society.
