Abstract

This thesis makes empirical and conceptual contributions to our understanding of the geography of ageing.Through a case
study of Perth, Western Australia, the research examines how cities are being shaped by, and how they are responding to,
population ageing. Using an innovative approach - the Population Ageing Matrix - the spatial distribution of ageing and the
residential mobility behaviour of older urban dwelling citizens are analysed. The associated policy and planning responses
to population ageing are explored through an examination of the Age-friendly City movement. Employing a novel conceptual
framework, the research examines how age-friendly interventions might be prioritised to create age-friendly communities.
