    Viele Welten des Alterns? Ältere Migranten im alternden Deutschland2012 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    In der Alternsforschung wurden Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund bisher weitgehend ausgeblendet und in der Migrationsforschung fanden ältere Menschen kaum Beachtung. Angesichts des zunehmenden Anteils Älterer in der Migrantenbevölkerung wird eine Verknüpfung der beiden Forschungszweige aber immer wichtiger. Das vorliegende Buch widmet sich der Auseinandersetzung mit dem Altern unter Migrationsbedingungen und der Lebensqualität älterer Migrantinnen und Migranten. Auf der Basis theoretischer Reflexionen, empirischer Befunde und politischer Überlegungen bietet der vorliegende Band erstmals einen fundierten Überblick über den aktuellen Kenntnis- und Diskussionsstand im Schnittfeld der beiden Forschungsgebiete.

    Viele Welten des Alterns?: Ältere Migrantinnen und Migranten in der Alter(n)s- und Migrationsforschung. Eine Einführung2012In: Viele Welten des Alterns?: Ältere Migranten im alternden Deutschland / [ed] Helen Baykara-Krumme, Andreas Motel-Klingebiel and Peter Schimany, Wiesbaden: VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften , 2012, p. 11-42Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Bedeutung und Bedingungen des Alterns haben sich in den westlichen Industrieländern in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten stark gewandelt. Altern als Veränderung über den Lebensverlauf und Altern als Lebensphase sind vielfältiger geworden. Zu dieser wachsenden Heterogenität trägt auch die Zunahme von Älteren mit Migrationshintergrund bei. Während in Wissenschaft und Öffentlichkeit die Aufmerksamkeit für die Vielfalt der Wege in die Lebensphase Alter und die Verschiedenartigkeit der Lebenssituationen älterer Menschen in den vergangenen Jahren merklich zugenommen hat, rücken ältere Migrantinnen und Migranten bisher noch selten ins Zentrum des Interesses. Sie werden zwar aufgrund steigender Zahlen und Bevölkerungsanteile zunehmend wahrgenommen. Das Forschungsfeld ‚Ältere Migranten‘ im Schnittpunkt von Alter(n)s- und Migrationsforschung kann jedoch noch nicht als etabliert gelten – weder in Deutschland, noch in anderen europäischen Ländern, die eine ähnliche demografische Entwicklung erleben.

    Die Einkommenssituation und -entwicklung Verwitweter in Deutschland2011In: Vierteljahreshefte zur Wirtschaftsforschung, ISSN 0340-1707, Vol. 80, no 4, p. 77-102Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The participation of the elderly in social prosperity has been a successful development for a long period of time but lately seems to get stuck. Old-age pensions of newly retired has been descending for years and real household income in later life is stagnating. Elderly people living in a single household are at an above-average risk of income poverty, which leads to the assumption that widowed persons more often than other groups tend to live in precarious income conditions. Although the public survivors' insurance compensates the effects of an income shock due to the death of a spouse up to a certain degree it does not necessarily enable to maintain the standard of living in widowhood. This article therefore addresses the development of the total income situation for widows and widowers. Using microdata from the German Ageing Survey (DEAS), income development can be traced from 1996 onwards, and effects of occupational and social determinants on the level of income are taken into account. Results show an increase of real equivalence income for the widows and widowers over time, with the exception of East German women. Gender, East or West Germany, social class, labour force participation and pillar of old age insurance are pivotal predictors for the income of widowed individuals. Women with low labour force participation over their lifecourse (housewife marriages) tend to have lower income and thus a higher poverty risk when their spouse deceases.Read More: http://ejournals.duncker-humblot.de/doi/abs/10.3790/vjh.80.4.77

    Ungleichheit sozialer Teilhabe im Alter2013In: Zeitschrift für Gerontologie und Geriatrie (Print), ISSN 0948-6704, E-ISSN 1435-1269, Vol. 46, no 5, p. 410-416Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of active ageing comprises the maintenance of societal participation throughout the life span into old age. “Good” ageing in line with this activity paradigm develops into a starting point of social inequality rather than being its result. Based on the German Ageing Survey (DEAS) we investigated access to volunteering and to educational activities depending on social and spatial aspects of inequality. Societal participation is socially and spatially structured. Individuals from a lower social class are less often involved in educational activities or in volunteering. Moreover, individuals living in economically disadvantaged regions are less likely to participate than in economically strong regions. Disadvantages cumulate if low individual resources overlap with poor economic conditions in the living area. Measures to facilitate participation should be taken on the local level to enhance opportunities for volunteering and educational activities. This should help to sustainably increase the participation of individuals from lower social classes.

    Do private intergenerational transfers from elderly parents increase social inequality among their middle-aged children? Evidence from the German Ageing Survey2005In: The journals of gerontology. Series B, Psychological sciences and social sciences, ISSN 1079-5014, E-ISSN 1758-5368, Vol. 60B, no 1, p. S30-S36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives. This study examines the consequences of private intergenerational transfers from elderly parents to their middle-aged children with respect to social inequality within the children's generation.

    Methods. With use of the nationally representative cross-sectional sample of the German Aging Survey, descriptive analyses as well as multivariate logistic regressions are used to identify the effects of three different types of private intergenerational transfers in the middle-age group (40–54 year olds, n = 1,719 for inter vivos and n = 1,446 for mortis causa transfers).

    Results. Transfers from parents or parents-in-law during the last 12 months—many of them smaller ones—are not significantly related to children's income. Separated and divorced children have significantly higher probabilities of receiving such transfers, indicating a need-directed family transfer process. Larger transfers before the last 12 months are need directed as well and moreover positively related to income position. Bequests, finally, are positively related to income position while having no need component at the time of observation.

    Discussion. Whereas larger monetary transfers and bequests may increase social inequality in the children's generation, a substantial part of the regular monetary flow from elderly parents to their adult children buffers situations of need. Public policy should take into account these different effects. Reducing the general level of public pensions would weaken regular transfer giving and thus lead to more inequality in the children's generation. Higher taxation of very large transfers and bequests would have the opposite effect.

    Grandparenthood: A Universal Aspiration for Later Life? On the Subjective Importance of the Grandparent Role in Germany2011In: Advances in Life Course Research, ISSN 1569-4909, E-ISSN 1879-6974, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 145-155Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the light of changing opportunity structures for the experience of grandparenthood, we address older parents’ attitudes towards the grandparent role. Our focus is on the interrelationship between the importance of the grandparent role and social class. The likelihood of the transition to grandparenthood and the opportunities to enact the grandparent role clearly differ according to an individual's social class position. We therefore ask whether the importance attached to grandparenthood varies for individuals from different social classes as well. Furthermore, we test for other correlates of the subjective importance of grandparenthood, such as the quality of family relations, marital status, and value orientations towards life in general.

    The analyses are based on data of the German Ageing Survey, a nationally representative study of individuals aged 40 years and older. Data collected in 2008 provide information on the subjective importance of (prospective) grandparenthood as reported by grandparents and non-grandparents.

    According to our data, the subjective importance of experienced as well as prospective grandparenthood does not vary by social class. Instead, we find relationship quality with grandchildren to be most influential and positively related to the perceived importance of the grandparent role. The same holds true for non-grandparents and their relationships with children. Conservative value orientations promote the importance of a future transition to grandparenthood only. In light of the findings, and given the changing opportunities to experience the grandparent role, grandparenthood might evolve into an unequally distributed social resource for later life.

    Proactive healthcare for frail elderly persons: study protocol for a prospective controlled primary care intervention in Sweden2019In: BMJ Open, ISSN 2044-6055, E-ISSN 2044-6055, Vol. 9, no 5, article id e027847Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction The provision of healthcare services is not dedicated to promoting maintenance of function and does not target frail older persons at high risk of the main causes of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of a proactive medical and social intervention in comparison with conventional care on a group of persons aged 75 and older selected by statistical prediction.

    Methods and analysis In a pragmatic multicentre primary care setting (n=1600), a prediction model to find elderly (75+) persons at high risk of complex medical care or hospitalisation is used, followed by proactive medical and social care, in comparison with usual care. The study started in April 2017 with a run-in period until December 2017, followed by a 2-year continued intervention phase that will continue until the end of December 2019. The intervention includes several tools (multiprofessional team for rehabilitation, social support, medical care home visits and telephone support). Primary outcome measures are healthcare cost, number of hospital care episodes, hospital care days and mortality. Secondary outcome measures are number of outpatient visits, cost of social care and informal care, number of prescribed drugs, health-related quality of life, cost-effectiveness, sense of security, functional status and ability. We also study the care of elderly persons in a broader sense, by covering the perspectives of the patients, the professional staff and the management, and on a political level, by using semistructured interviews, qualitative methods and a questionnaire.

    Ethics and dissemination Approved by the regional ethical review board in Linköping (Dnr 2016/347-31). The results will be presented in scientific journals and scientific meetings during 2019–2022 and are planned to be used for the development of future care models.

    Armut im Alter?: Ergebnisse der Berliner Altersstudie zur Einkommenslage alter und sehr alter Menschen1993In: Zeitschrift für Soziologie, ISSN 0340-1804, Vol. 22, no 6, p. 433-448Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Die materielle Absicherung alter Menschen zu gewährieisten, ist eines der zentralen sozialpolitischen Ziele, gerade bei einer zunehmenden Alterung der Bevölkerung. Inwieweit sind alte und sehr alte Menschen von Armut betroffen? Ermöglicht das Alterssicherungssystem den Alten die Aufrechterhaltung eines ausreichenden Lebensstandards? Im theoretischen Teil der Studie werden Armuts- und Einkommenskonzepte diskutiert. Die empirische Untersuchung basiert auf einer Stichprobe von über 70-jährigen Personen in West-Berlin, die im Rahmen der Berliner Altersstudie gewonnen wurde. Erstens wird gezeigt, daB alte Menschen in Berlin insgesamt nur in geringem Maß von Armut betroffen sind. Zweitens wird jedoch belegt, dass die finanzielle Lage der über 70-Jährigen sehr unterschiedlich ist. So sind insbesondere uber 85-jährige Frauen und Heimbewohner von einem beträchtlichen Armutsrisiko betroffen. Die Ergebnisse einer Regressionsanalyse auf die Wohlfahrtslage alter Menschen verdeutlichen, daB die Verwitwung nicht mit einer Verschlechterung der Einkommenslage einhergeht. Vielmehr verfügen die Verwitweten beider Geschlechter über höhere finanzielle Ressourcen als die Verheirateten.  Merkmale des Erwerbsverlaufs erweisen sich als zentrale Prädiktoren der materiellen Lage im Alter. Unterschiede in den Wohlfahrtspositionen alter und sehr alter Frauen werden plausibel, wenn man berücksichtigt, dass Erwerbsverläufe kohortenspezifisch verlaufen sind.

    Alter und Generationenvertrag im Wandel des Sozialstaats: Alterssicherung und private Generationenbeziehungen in der zweiten Lebenshälfte2000Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [de]

    Das sozialstaatliche Alterssicherungsarrangement in Deutschland steht unter zunehmendem Anpassungsdruck. Das vorliegende Buch diskutiert Grundlagen, Probleme und Reformperspektiven und betont aus einer sozialpolitischen, familiensoziologischen, und alter(n)swissenschaftlichen Perspektive die Verknüpfung der öffentlichen intergenerationalen Umverteilung mit den privaten Generationenbeziehungen. Beide Gefüge und ihre Verbindung werden empirisch untersucht. Hierdurch wird die ökonomisch verengte Perspektive der gegenwärtigen Debatten um Generationengerechtigkeit und die Reform der Alterssicherung erweitert - mit entscheidenden Konsequenzen für ihre Bewertung.

    Abstract [de]

    Der demografische Wandel ist eine der großen aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Herausforderungen. Niedrige Fertilität, zunehmende Migration und die Verlängerung der Lebensspanne verändern die Gesellschaft. Die Lebenserwartung hat im 20. Jahrhundert stetig um zwei bis drei Jahre pro Jahrzehnt zugenommen und steigt weiter. Das lange Leben bringt gesellschaftliche und individuelle Entwicklungschancen mit sich, geht aber zugleich mit bisher unbekannten Herausforderungen einher.

    Welfare States and Quality of Later Life: Distributions and Predictions in a Comparative Perspective2009In: European Journal of Ageing, ISSN 1613-9372, E-ISSN 1613-9380, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 67-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Demographic transitions are a driver of social change and societal ageing influences the resources and chances in life of different age groups. As a contribution to the debate on (potential) results of the transformation of social security in ageing societies, the impact of social security systems on distributions of quality of life in later life is discussed. Quality of life is introduced as a helpful concept to answer the paper’s research questions: How are levels of quality of life in later life and the variability of objective and subjective quality of life indicators related to welfare state arrangements? What is the relevance of social structure indicators for this variability, how is it related to old age security, and what can be learned for the perspectives of current debates on equity and social security reforms? In a comparative perspective employing Esping-Andersen’s welfare regime typology, three basic hypotheses are thoroughly tested: the ‘hypothesis of (relative) levels’, the ‘distribution hypothesis’ and the ‘social structure hypothesis’. The analyses apply micro data from ten countries. While most of them are included in the first wave of the international comparative research project SHARE, data for England come from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing. Descriptive analyses as well as multivariate models prove an interconnection between welfare state systems and quality of life indicators but not all three hypotheses can be fully confirmed. Social policy implications of these findings are discussed and a basis for extended future analyses is outlined.

    Der Deutsche Alterssurvey weist einerseits positive Trends bei Lebenssituationen und -gefühlen Älterer nach, markiert aber auch, wo sich objektive und subjektive Umstände sowie das gesellschaftliche Beteiligungsverhalten der älteren Generation ausdifferenzieren: nämlich entlang an bildungsbedingten und sozialen Gegensätzen. Dies gilt es in Politik und Erwachsenenbildung zu berücksichtigen.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, informal and formal provision of help and support for older people will be discussed in a welfare state comparative perspective, focussing on the relation between intergenerational family help and welfare state support. A range of research hypotheses is illuminated and tested. While the ‘substitution’ hypothesis states that generous provision of welfare state services may potentially crowd out family help to older people, the ‘encouragement’ hypothesis predicts the crowding in of family help. In addition, the hypothesis of ‘mixed responsibility’ predicts a combination of help and support by families and services – and, at last, the hypothesis of ‘functional differentiation’ assumes a specific mix with distinct and characteristic responsibilities of the named societal institutions.

    Results come from the research project OASIS – Old Age and Autonomy: The Role of Service Systems and Intergenerational Family Solidarity’. This European comparative data is based on disproportionally age-stratified random samples of the urban population (25 years and older) in Norway, England, Germany, Spain, and Israel (n=6.106).

    Findings show that total help received is more common in welfare states with a strong infrastructure of formal services. Moreover, statistical controls for social structure, pre¬ferences and familial opportunity structures bring in no evidence of substantial crowding out of family help. On the contrary, results support the hypothesis of ‘mixed responsibility’ and ‘functional differentiation’, as they point to the fact that in societies with well-developed service infrastructures, help from families and welfare-state services act accumulatively in the support of quality of life of older people. Help and support is less likely and support mixes are unusual in fami¬ly-oriented welfare regimes.

    Welfare states do not crowd out the family: Evidence for mixed responsibility from comparative analyses2005In: Ageing & Society, ISSN 0144-686X, E-ISSN 1469-1779, Vol. 25, no 6, p. 863-882Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses the informal and formal provision of help and support to older people from a comparative welfare state perspective, with particular reference to the relationships between inter-generational family help and welfare state support. While the ‘substitution’ hypothesis states that the generous provision of welfare state services in support of older people ‘crowds out’ family help, the ‘encouragement’ hypothesis predicts a stimulation of family help, and the ‘mixed responsibility’ hypothesis predicts a combination of family and formal help and support. The paper reports findings from the Old Age and Autonomy: The Role of Service Systems and Inter-generational Family Solidarity (OASIS) research project. This created a unique age-stratified sample of 6,106 people aged 25–102 years from the urban populations of Norway, England, Germany, Spain and Israel. The analyses show that the total quantity of help received by older people is greater in welfare states with a strong infrastructure of formal services. Moreover, when measures of the social structure, support preferences and familial opportunity structures were controlled, no evidence of a substantial ‘crowding out’ of family help was found. The results support the hypothesis of ‘mixed responsibility’, and suggest that in societies with well-developed service infrastructures, help from families and welfare state services act accumulatively, but that in familistic welfare regimes, similar combinations do not occur.

    In den vergangenen Jahrzehnten haben sich die Bedeutungen und die Bedingungen des Alter(n)s in Deutschland gewandelt. Nach einer Phase der stetigen Verbesserung materieller Lagen im Alter stehen spätestens seit dem Paradigmenwechsel in der Alterssicherung wachsende Armutsrisiken auf der sozialpolitischen Agenda.

    Social inequality in the later life: Cross-national comparison of quality of life2004In: European Journal of Ageing, ISSN 1613-9372, E-ISSN 1613-9380, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 6-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses quality of life and inequality in old age in an international comparative and a life course perspective. Quality of life is seen as an outcome of unequal chances in life. We distinguish between overall and domain specific expressions of quality of life which allows us to analyse the determinants of overall quality of life and their development over the life course. The data presented come from the research project “OASIS - Old Age and Autonomy: The Role of Service Systems and Intergenerational Family Solidarity”. This data set is based on an age stratified random sample of the urban population (25–102 years) in Norway, England, Germany, Spain, and Israel (n=6,106). With advancing age, there are decreasing mean levels and increasing variation of quality of life. With age, the impact of physical health on overall quality of life increases, while the predictive power of other domains decreases. The results support the hypothesis of differentiation as well as the age-dependency hypothesis. For both these both aspects, international comparisons show similar results in different societies. These uniform age tendencies in modern European societies point to a limited importance of societal embeddedness and support the interpretation of age group differences as being life course effects.

    Altern im Wandel: Befunde des Deutschen Alterssurveys (DEAS)2010Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Wie Menschen älter werden, wie lange sie leben und wie sich ihr Leben im Alter gestaltet, wird durch soziale und gesellschaftliche Bedingungen beeinflusst. Diese Bedingungen ändern sich über die Zeit und bilden den Hintergrund für einen Wandel der späteren Lebensphasen. Zu den Entwicklungen der letzten Jahrzehnte zählen eine gestiegene Lebenserwartung, Veränderungen in der Erwerbswelt, neue Lebenslaufmuster und Familienformen sowie ein Wandel in den gesellschaftlichen Werten und Normen und den Versorgungs- und Sicherungssystemen. Dieses Buch beschäftigt sich mit der Lebensphase Alter und zeigt auf der Grundlage des Deutschen Alterssurveys (DEAS), welcher Wandel sich vollzieht. Dadurch werden Chancen, Risiken und Gestaltungsoptionen für eine Gesellschaft des langen Lebens deutlich. Der DEAS wird durch das Bundesministerium für Familie, Senioren, Frauen und Jugend (BMFSFJ) gefördert.

    Hochaltrigkeit in der Gesellschaft des langen Lebens: Theoretische Herausforderung, empirisches Problem und sozialpolitische Aufgabe2013In: Zeitschrift für Gerontologie und Geriatrie (Print), ISSN 0948-6704, E-ISSN 1435-1269, Vol. 46, no 1, p. 5-9Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on very old age as a challenge for ageing theory, as an empirical problem and as a scope for social policy and it introduces the contributions of the special issue “Very old age in an ageing society”. Especially the need for (re-)integration of the life-phases of young and old age is discussed from the position of social and behavioural ageing research. While reaching very old age is an increasingly normal life-event, and thus there is an increasing need for knowledge, there is currently only limited knowledge about it. It is particularly the diversity and inequality within old and very old age and the pathways into latest life that needs to be targeted. Finally, normative patterns and biographical outlines of this increasingly important phase of life need to be developed.

    Gender Differences in Subjective Well-Being: Comparing Societies with Respect to Gender Equality2008In: Social Indicators Research, ISSN 0303-8300, E-ISSN 1573-0921, Vol. 85, no 2, p. 329-349Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    These analyses explore the relationship between gender inequality and subjective well-being. The hypothesis was tested as to whether societal gender inequality is related to the size of gender differences in subjective well-being in various societies. Results come from comparative data sets (World Values Survey, involving 57 countries; OASIS project, involving Norway, England, Germany, Spain and Israel). The size of gender differences varied with the extent of societal gender inequality and the cultural attitudes regarding gender equality in different countries. Including individual resources like education and income in the analyses reduced the size of gender and country differences. Gender differences in subjective well-being could therefore be related to gender specific access to goal relevant resources.

    Altern im sozialen Wandel: Rückkehr der Altersarmut?2014Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Der künftig drohende Anstieg der Altersarmut steht spätestens seit dem Paradigmenwechsel in der Alterssicherung auf der Agenda. Gleichzeitig verfügten die älteren Menschen im Durchschnitt nie zuvor über solch umfangreichen materiellen Wohlstand wie heute. „Die Alten“ gerieten so als Profiteure des vormaligen Ausbaus sozialstaatlicher Sicherung in den Fokus der Debatten um die Generationengerechtigkeit. Armut im Alter wurde kaum thematisiert und gilt zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts weithin als überwunden. Allerdings ist die Armutsbetroffenheit etwa alleinstehender älterer Frauen nach wie vor hoch und die sich verändernden Erwerbs- und Familienbiografien wirken sich ebenfalls auf die Alterssicherung und Lebenssituation im Alter aus. Ist also mit einer Rückkehr der Altersarmut zu rechnen? Und welche soziologischen, alter(n)swissenschaftlichen und sozialpolitischen Implikationen haben die Diagnosen, insbesondere für die künftige Entwicklung der Lebensphase Alter und die Anforderungen an die Sozialpolitik? Diese Fragen versucht der vorliegende Band zu beantworten

    Media Representation of Life Stages: Analysis of Photographs Posted on Norrköping Municipal Facebook Accounts2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: It has been found by researchers that older adults are statistically underrepresented and associated with negative stereotypes in the mass media. Older adults are generally viewed as incompetent from stereotyped media content, which may make them socially excluded from a set of opportunities and resources. The media portrayals are conceived as value-expressive and constructing the image of older adults and ageing. The purpose of this study is to investigate how Norrköping municipality portrays citizens at different life stages in social media with a special emphasis on the use of age stereotypes in the photos used.

    Method: The material consists of the photos collected from 32 Facebook accounts produced by municipal bodies during the entire year of 2018. The analysis is based on a categorization of various features of the photos in order to statistically describe the relation between signs, activities and contexts associated with distinct life stages. Further, the meaning of frequently-used symbols in the photographs is analysed.

    Result: The study concludes that old age persons are numerically underrepresented in the material. A number of signs and activities in the photographs, and contexts beyond the photographs, that stereotypically corresponded to five distinct life stages (infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age) are identified. Old age is repetitively portrayed in the context of coffee drinking and foot bathing on Norrköping municipality’s Facebook page, while adolescence is depicted with practical training at high schools to an excessive degree. Besides, the result suggests that certain minorities of citizens did not show up in the municipal social media: people with disabilities, migrants, people with dementia and on forth.

    Conclusion: The municipality communicates stereotypical images of life stages through associating with specific contexts in the photographic coverage. Therefore, communication professionals need to be aware of the stereotypical construction of life stages in the media.
