Changes in ageing, longevity and old age in Spain. From 50 to over 100.  Present and future


Gender is a category of social analysis built on the biological dichotomy of sex (man-woman), who are assigned roles with different social value. We analyse the differential transformation of demographic behaviour of women and men during the past century and temporal changes, in successive cohort studies throughout their life cycle and in diverse social contexts. We are particularly interested in the feminisation of old age, which modifies the characteristics not just of population structure but also of the social structure of our societies.
