Uren Z, Goldring S. Migration trends at older ages in England and Wales. Population Trends 2007; 130 (4): 31-40.

This article uses data from the ONS Longitudinal Study (1971-2001) to illustrate trends in migration at older ages. It shows how the propensity to migrate differs by age, sex, marital status, living arrangements, economic resources and health in later life, amongst people aged 50 or over in England and Wales. Results show that moves at older ages are associated with changes in health and living arrangements, but also that these associations are interrelated with other factors such as age.
