Aiding and Aging: The Coming Crisis in Support for the Elderly by Kin and State

By John Mogey | Go to book overview

Hungary over the 1972-76 period. This does not necessarily imply, however, a rising prevalence of the same health conditions among the elderly population overall. Indeed, considerations of selectivity in mortality according to latent or underlying "frailty" (see, for example, Vaupel and Yashin, 1985, or Manton and Soldo, 1985) suggest that one consequence of rising mortality rates over time might be a reduced prevalence of physical debilitation within the population of surviving elderly.

Besides the questions of future changes in the structure and composition of the elderly population, in the patterns of kin available to the elderly for forming shared-household and care arrangements, and in the incidence of disabling health conditions, all of which the preceding analysis indicates are important determinants of living arrangements, we must also consider other factors outside the model. Two very important factors are the overall state of the housing supply in Hungary and the number of places in institutions. Together these factors will determine whether the family or the state--or possibly both--will be "squeezed" by the care needs of a growing older population in Hungary in the coming decades.


NOTE
1.
A referee has pointed out that only 1 percent of unmarried women aged 70 and over live with a "life-partner"; hence our coverage of the unmarried population is virtually complete.
