Longevity is increasing worldwide and there is a rapidly growing interest in identifying individuals who age "successfully" and in understanding why they do so. This seminar will explore aspects of successful ageing in a large cohort of older men and women living in the West of Scotland. I will consider how we identify individuals who are ageing successfully, explore how socioeconomic position across the life-course impacts on successful ageing, and describe how leaving the labour force later in life impacts on aspects of successful ageing.
