Studies to date have shown an association between the presence of patent foramen
ovale and cryptogenic stroke in patients younger than 55 years of age. This association
has not been established in patients 55 years of age or older.
We prospectively examined 503 consecutive patients who had had a stroke, and we
compared the 227 patients with cryptogenic stroke and the 276 control patients with
stroke of known cause.
In this paper we build user simulations of older and younger adults using a corpus of interactions with a Wizard-of-Oz appointment scheduling system. We measure the quality of these models with standard metrics proposed in the literature. Our results agree with predictions based on statistical analysis of the corpus and previous ﬁndings about the diversity of older people’s behaviour.
Are older drivers posing an increasing risk to the public? If they are, what options should policymakers consider to mitigate that risk? This research offers a new perspective on these questions. Using an innovative approach to estimate the extent to which older drivers are on the road and their riskiness compared with drivers of other
This process of cohort succession is thus increasing the
average literacy rate of the population 60 and older over time. In addition, Phnom Penh elderly represent
a larger share of the SEC sample than of the national population of elderly and, as indicated above, since
the literacy level of Phnom Penh elderly is above the national average, this also has the effect of raising
the average literacy level compared to nationally representative census results. However when tabulations
of SEC are limited to persons 66 and older to correspond to the cohorts who were 60 and older in 1998,
Given the unusual circumstances of Cambodia and their likely impacts on the older population,
considerable effort was made to develop a survey questionnaire that not only would cover the standard
issues about elderly economic, social and physical well-being that are the focus of recent surveys of older
age populations in the region but also issues specific for the situation in Cambodia.
A representative sample survey of 1273 persons aged 60 and older living in private households was
conducted in an area covering over half of Cambodia's population which includes Phnom Penh and the
five most populated provinces (Kampong Cham, Kandal, Prey Veng, Battambang, and Takeo).
location of the provinces covered are shown in Figure 1. Sampling procedures are described in detail in
Appendix A. Samples were drawn separately for Phnom Penh and the other five provinces taken
collectively using somewhat different procedures for the two domains.

This report provides a basic but comprehensive demographic, social, economic and health profile of
Cambodia’s older population based on the 2004 Survey of Elderly in Cambodia (SEC), a representative
survey of persons age 60 and over conducted in Phnom Penh and the five largest provinces. As such it

A great gulf exists between what is known and what
should be known about women in midlife and older, in
order to understand their lives. In Jamaica, women over
fifty years old are taken for granted, although demographically
and socially they have been, and continue
to be, a force to be reckoned with in the society. They
are such a force because of their positive contributions
to family, community and the economy.
The lives of many older people are more frequently negatively affected by the social and
economic insecurity that accompany the demographic and developmental process (World
Bank, 1994). The growth of individualism and desire for the independence and autonomy of
the young generation (Serow, 2001) affect the status of the elderly. The studies show that the
socioeconomic condition of older women is more vulnerable in the context of the
demographic and sociocultural change (Tout, 1993).
