Population Ageing from a Lifecourse Perspective free pdf Populations around the globe age. This demographic shift affects families, market structures, and social provisions. This timely volume, part of the Ageing and the Lifecourse series, argues that the lifecourse perspective helps us understand causes and effects of population ageing. The lifecourse perspective suggests that individuals' experiences at an early age can influence decisions and behaviour at a later age. This much-needed volume combines insights from different disciplines and real-life experiences to describe the theories and practices behind this idea. It therefore caters to the needs of scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers in a range of areas including sociology and political science.
