Data Mining In Conceptualising Active Ageing

Nayak, Richi, Buys, Laurie, & Lovie-Kitchin, Jan E. (2006) Data Mining In Conceptualising Active Ageing. In 5th Australasian Data Mining Conference (AusDM2006), December 2006, Sydney, Australia.


The concept of older adults contributing to society in a meaningful way has been termed 'active ageing'. We present applications of data mining techniques on the active ageing data collected via a survey of older australian on a wide range of social and behavioural variables. The goal is to understand the underlying relationships and attributes which characterise active ageing. The data mining results indicate that an individual's health, attitude to learning, social network support and (positive) emotional feelings are significant contributors to achieving active ageing.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
