Tittel

HOME Rural to urban migration among older people - A longitudinal study of preconditions and consequences for health, functioning and wellbeing

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

By 2050, the world’s urban population is expected to nearly double with an expected disproportional growth in rates of older people. Both urbanization and ageing are transformative trends that not only change our way of living and working, but also how we experience our environments throughout our lives and into older age. Since the turn of the century, an increasing number of older Norwegians have moved from rural locations to independent dwellings or apartments in more urban areas. Internal migration is often voluntary but may be born of necessity, and has the potential to both worsen or improve one’s health status. The objectives of the transdisciplinary project HOME are to (i) explore and identify why older people move from rural to more urban settlements, and to (ii) investigate the impact of internal migration on older people’s health, functioning and wellbeing. Analysis will be based on longitudinal data from the Trøndelag Health Study (HUNT 2-3-4) over 11 years (1995-2019), and linked on an individual level to national administrative data from Statistics Norway’s event database that includes life cycle events, demographics, welfare benefit status, and income. The data will have a two-level hierarchical structure which will enable us to investigate the relevance of the residential context to migration. In addition, qualitative research methods will be used to add depth to the understanding about how, why and when migration matters. In order to promote health, functioning and wellbeing of older inhabitants, HOME is expected to provide unique knowledge for the planning and framing of more age-friendly and sustainable communities (also in rural locations), i.e. asking what makes a good fit between older people, place and health (cf. World Health Organization 2020). Stakeholders will be integrated throughout the research to enhance the relevance and impact of study findings.
