Abstract

The authors examine the effects of social support on both life satisfaction and survival at older ages, as well as the relations between life satisfaction and survival, in developed countries in general. The analysis is based on a review of the literature. They then use data from a longitudinal study of people living in the London borough of Hackney to analyze some of the factors associated with survival of the very old. The results are suggestive of a link between social support factors and survival in this elderly population. (ANNOTATION)
