Grundy E. Moves into supported private households among elderly people in England and Wales. Special LS issue of Environment and Planning A 1993; 25 (10): 1467-1479

Data from the Longitudinal Study (LS) of the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys have been used to examine differentials in the proportion of elderly people living in 'independent' households (alone or with only a spouse) in 1971 but in 'supported' households (with relatives or friends) ten years later. The geographical focus is on England and Wales.
