Topic: Partnership dissolution and re-formation in later life among individuals from minority ethnic communities in the UK

Supervisors: Professors Maria Evandrou, Jane Falkingham, Athina Vlachantoni

Description: The likelihood of experiencing divorce at ages 65 and over has been rising in the last two decades, however our understanding of ethnic differences in partnership dissolution and re-partnering in later life, and its implications for individuals’ resources, remains limited. The project will analyse data from the UK Census and the UK Household Longitudinal Survey to investigate the potential consequences of such patterns for older individuals’ financial circumstances, mental and physical health and social networks. The project will appeal to individuals who are interested in ethnic differences in partnership patterns and resources, and who wish to develop their quantitative analysis skills.
