Abstract

Selective factors in aged migration have only rarely been explored within a multivariate framework. In this paper a conceptual framework of the decision process of aged households is formalized in terms of these selective factors and evaluated using multivariate logistic regression. The results indicate the importance of the type of household in mediating the impact of selective factors on the likelihood of moving. Further analysis provides insights into the residential decision processes of the two largest aged sub-populations (husband-wife households, and women living alone), and suggests future directions for research.
