The European voice for informal carers

FutureGEN: Launch of the Data Navigator

On 12 May 2021, the FutureGEN team launched the Data Navigator, an open-access tool that allows the user to compare gender and socioeconomic differences in health and long-term care use for community-dwelling older people in Europe.

The Data Navigator uses data from the Survey on Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) on individuals aged 65+ within 4 care regimes (Northern, Continental, Southern and Eastern care regime) from 2004 to 2017 and presents 5 health and long-term care related indicators: prevalence of individuals with ADL limitations, with IADL limitations, receiving formal care, receiving informal care, and providing informal care.

The Data Navigator can be used in research and advocacy work to understand the macro level trends in health and care taking place across care regimes, as well as for comparing how gender and socioeconomic inequalities have evolved over time. The Data Navigator is available here.
