Abstract

Objective:

Subjective health, age identification and the perceived status of people over 70 were assessed in a subsample of older respondents (N = 6185) of the 2008/2009 European Social Survey. We examined whether country-level differences in the perceived status of older adults moderated the effect of age identification on subjective ill-health.

Results:

The results provide an important insight into being ascribed a higher social status is likely to have a protective function for older people.
