Abstract

An analysis of data from the A.N.U. Ageing and the Family Project's Sydney survey is described. Well being of aged respondents does not depend upon socio‐economic status or age. Nor does the size of support networks have much effect. What does Seem to be of importance, however, is the extent to which an individual has particular types of expressive support, and more particularly, whether s/he has a full range of such supports. The supports and the range are linked to gender and marital status, with women receiving greater support than men and the married more than the various not married categories.
