Active and productive ageing in India: evidence from the time use pattern of ageing adults

Published on November 20, 2023



With the increasing proportion of older adults in India, it becomes essential to get an insight into the various influencing factors of successful ageing. However, the literature on successful ageing is minuscule in the Indian context. The present study attempted to understand successful ageing in terms of active and productive ageing by exploring their determining factors.
