95% of people in later life feel ageing should be a time of celebration - despite 78% feeling that older people are ignored by society.
New research by Age UK‚ the new force combining Age Concern and Help the Aged‚ has revealed that 95% of people over 60 think getting older should be a time of enjoyment and celebration.

This is despite 78% of this age group feeling that older people are ignored by society. The polling for Age UK by YouGov also revealed that 82% of over-60s felt that older people’s voices were not heard as much as younger people’s. It also highlighted how work‚ not necessarily just age‚ may play a defining role in this with 64% saying they felt working people had a greater voice than those who were retired. more

Is a survey, done online, in just four days polling only 1076 persons, really representative of the millions eligible to take part in such a survey?

Age UK have already complained that too few older people are online and then conduct surveys amongst the minorities. Politics!
