AbstractThis study was conducted with the aim of providing quantitative data on the ethnic aged still living at home, as well as providing comparative data for use with other studies without an ethnic focus (see SSDA Study No. 210, Non-institutionalised aged in Sydney, 1981). Interviews were conducted with persons aged 60 years and over in private dwellings in Melbourne and Sydney, who were born in China, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland and Yugoslavia. Topics covered include types of living arrangements, extent of family and community support, use of domiciliary and welfare services, problems experienced at home due to health, income or family circumstances, and unmet needs. Information was also collected on health status, physical mobility and independence, utilisation of services, employment and income, informal support networks and leisure activities including media usage. Background details include age, sex, birthplace of respondent, partner and parents, language facility, marital status and religious affiliation.
