The number of people aged 50 plus being socially excluded from decent housing, public transport and local amenities rose sharply over a six year period. Over one in six people in their fifties (18%) were socially excluded in two of more areas of their life in 2008 – up from 13 per cent in 2002. The research also found that almost 38% of those aged 85 or older faced some two or more kinds of social exclusion, an encouraging decline of 10% from the 2002 levels. For those aged 60-64 years old, the figure was 12.4% experiencing two or more kinds of exclusion in 2008. The report highlights how an older person’s demographic, socioeconomic and health characteristics were associated with whether or not they were socially excluded.
