Residential Moving Behaviour of the Elderly: An Explanatory Analysis for the Netherlands by Tineke Fokkema, C. M. Fokkema

In the first part of this book, attention is focused on the decision-making process underlying the moving behaviour of the elderly. It contributes to a deeper understanding of the circumstances under which elderly persons are likely to move. After a review and evaluation of existing theoretical micro-mobility models, empirical analyses are carried out to determine the explanatory power of one of these models pertaining to elderly persons. Other factors which may need to be included in this model are considered in relation to the empirical findings. An empirical analysis was then made on the factors idenitified to ascertain their importance. In the second part, the focus is on the geographical patterns of elderly migration in the Netherlands, especially concerning the stability of these patterns during the period 1982-1993. It also discusses which Dutch municipalities are the most attractive for elderly migrants and whether a relationship exists between these popular municipalities and the level of certain amenities offered by each municipality.
