    Abstract

    There are numerous ways to better integrate the elderly into communities, many of which are contingent upon whether they will remain in their pre- retirement homes or make a move. Using a life course perspective, this paper establishes that residential history, social and family relations, socio- economic status, and health trajectories measured at mid-life, can be associated with moves in later life, either directly or indirectly through their effect on the mid-life residential trajectory. These relationships are examined with multi-variate Cox proportional hazards and Poisson regression models, using data from the Ontario Longitudinal Study of Aging. These findings suggest directions for future research to aid the development of public policy for the large "baby boom" cohorts who are just entering mid-life.
