Abstract

Ageing and longevity have created many concerns including living alone and social isolation among older women in the UK and this has now become a growing concern to policy-makers. The paper aims to examines factors associated with health and well-being of older women living alone using data collected in the ‘Understanding Society'. It is a nationwide longitudinal survey that captures important information on the life course trajectories of individuals in the UK. There is an increasing trend of single women by age. Women living alone may need to balance in later life and the importance of comparing profiles for different groups of older women may help policy-makers towards an inclusive positive ageing.
