Abstract: This thesis seeks to explore the problems of housing for the elderly in Shanghai, urban area, and discusses Shanghaia??s ageing population, social policies, the elderlya??s housing choices as well as the future development. The study of housing choice behavior of the elderly is the main body of this thesis. The first part of the study analyzes the current situation of population and society in China and other countries and areas, both from West and Asia. Further, an analytical framework concerning the elderlya??s housing choice is developed and discussed.
