Review:

"I particularly liked the section that looks at incomplete data and attrition, as the authors provide ways of resolving these issues.Overall, the handbook aims to provide a foundation for an understanding of the issues of ageing for both the individual and the wider society and it achieves this through the wide range of topics covered."--Ageing & Society, May 2013
