The Finnish Family Federation and the research group on population ageing cooperated in putting this book together and in organizing the book launch.
Life-histories in Finland: First results from the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe
The Finnish population is ageing. This demographic shift changes societies, bringing about new ways of life. Citizens, researchers, practitioners and policy-makers observe this development with great interest. This book investigates Finnish population ageing from a life-course perspective. This means that is looks into how lives unfold over time. This perspective helps us better understand the reasons for population ageing, and it gives us an idea of how societies will continue to change in the future. The topics of health and disability, health care, work and retirement, the financial situation, the family situation, and housing are discussed. The better we understand these topics, the better we can prepare for what the future holds for us.
