Professor Dominic Abrams and Dr Hannah Swift were asked to summarise some of the topline results from the Experiences and Expressions of Ageism module fielded in the 2008/9 European Social Survey. The booklet focuses on key findings for the UK, exploring people’s experiences of ageism including the relationship between ageism and well-being and the impact of ageism on beliefs about how different age groups are viewed by society. The report also explores issues of intergenerational solidarity, looking at how similar younger and older age groups are perceived to be and the likelihood of people having friendships with others from different age groups.

Findings will be disseminated to relevant policy makers in early 2013.
