Abstract

The increase in longevity recorded in the last decades in the developed countries represents one of the most important changes ever recorded from a demographical and social point of view. The continuous gain in life expectancy opens up new scenarios with marked impact on individual lives and on societies. Simultaneously, the decrease in fertility continues to raise the old age index (relation between old and young generations), which has risen steeply in Italy in the last decades. However, if on the one hand the demographical indicators unequivocally highlight these changes, on the other it is more and more clear that some of the parameters used to measure such changes are becoming outdated. In particular, in this research, we analyze the characteristics of those who are usually included among the old generations, the so called “seniors” (65-74 years old), with the aim of highlighting both the level of their activity and the interrelation with the social network and mutual help.
