Demey, Dieter, Berrington, Ann, Evandrou, Maria, Falkingham, Jane and McGowan, Teresa (2011) How has mid-life changed in Britain since the 1980s? , Southampton, GB ESRC Research Centre for Population Change (CPC) 4pp. (CPC Briefing Paper, 2).

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


Changing living arrangements in mid-life reflect historical changes in the occurrence and timing of life events such as marriage and parenthood as well as increases in life expectancy. This briefing summarises research, published in Population Trends No. 145, which investigates changes over time in the presence of kin and living arrangements across the life course and the changing demographics of those in mid-life. The work shows how the marital status, educational level, activity status and housing tenure of those aged 45-64 in Britain have changed over the past quarter century.
