The monitor focuses on the wellbeing of older people aged 50 and over in Wales, with a view to providing a holistic picture of their lives.
This is the latest release
It pulls together statistics and research from a range of different sources and reports on a variety of wellbeing indicators.
The monitor is based on the nine indicators of change from the Strategy for Older People in Wales (2008-2013) and the 18 United Nations Principles for Older Persons.
- Dignity and social inclusion.
- Independence and material wellbeing.
- Health and care.
- Self-fulfillment and active ageing.
Two pieces of work were commissioned to support the development of this Monitor: a review of the evidence and a qualitative interview study. The evidence review was conducted by Cardiff University and the qualitative study by Glyndwr University.
