  • The purpose of this study is to understand the origin of the super-aged rural community and the meaning of the elderly's life in such a unique society by looking into the elderly's life from the past to the present to the future. For the study in-depth interviews have been done with 16 old people living in Geumdong village, Imshil-gun of Jeonbuk Province, one of the most aged communities of Korea. By analyzing their statements, 4 themes have been found from 11 meanings of statements on the past life, which is characterized by their fight against bonds of extreme poverty and misfortune. On the present life, which is characterized by their bare existence in senility and their endless sacrifice for the children as they are never free from the physical pains accompanying the ageing and the concern about their children, 5 themes have been found from 14 meanings of statements. About the future life, which is characterized by their calm acceptance of the fate of their later life and their village which they think will disappear after they die, 3 themes have been found from 7 meanings of statements.

  • The objective of this study is to examine whether there are differences in participation in social activities and the effects of social activity types on the levels of happiness of the Korean older adults by age groups. The 5th wave(2014) of the Korean Longitudinal Study of Ageing (KLoSA) was used and a total of 3,273 elderly were selected from the 5th wave, who were 65 years old and older and who were not living with their offsprings. Chi-square test, ANOVA, and hierarchical multiple regression analysis were used. The rate of participation in economic activities declined with age and the levels of participation in leisure activities was higher in the young-old group in comparison to the middle- and the oldest- old groups. The levels of participation in family activities was higher in the middle- and the oldest-old groups in comparison to the young-old group. Socializing activities and religious activities measured by the frequencies of activities were not significantly different among the age groups. The results of a regression analysis of social activity types and their effects on happiness by age groups are the followings: 1) Leisure, socializing, religious, and family activities all (with the exception of economic activities) significantly affected the level of happiness of older persons in the young-old group. 2) However, only socializing and family activities in the middle-old age group, and only family activities in oldest-old group, had a statistically significant impact on the levels of happiness. These results support that the rates of participation in the five types of social activities and their effects on the levels of happiness were different by age groups. The implication of this study was to report that needs and the interests of older individuals are different by age groups based on empirical evidences.

  • 실버산업기술은 대체로 60세 이상의 계층(실버층)을 대상으로 민간부문에 의하여 자유시장에서 공급되는 재화 및 서비스를 생산하는 기술을 말한다. 평균수명 연장으로 65세 이상 고령자 인구가 지속적으로 증가하여 2007년 전체인구의 9.8%를 차지하고 있으며, 2018년 고령사회(14%), 2026년 초고령사회(20%)로 진입할 것으로 보인다. 우리나라 고령화는 외국에 비해 심각한데 그에 대한 대응은 다소 늦은 감이 있다. 그러나 밀려오는 고령화 추세를 고령친화산업의 기회요인을 잘 활용한다면 침체된 시장을 살려 새로운 성장 엔진으로 전화시킬 수 있을 뿐 아니라 노인의 삶의 질도 한층 더 향상될 것이다.

  • Purpose: Korea is expected to enter an aged society in 2018 and then a super-aged society in early 2025. The country's aging is progressing faster than any other country in the world. However, the foundation of the elderly friendly industry is weak, and measures at the government level are urgently needed. Especially, housing problems of the elderly are one of the most urgent measures to be taken. Korea does not have the minimum residential area standard for the elderly, and the current general minimum residential area standard is based on the survey of the housing situation without scientific evidence. Therefore, both standards need to be revised as soon as possible based on scientific evidence. Methods: The minimum residential area standard has been calculated following Karl H. E. Kroemer's Min or Max design also being called as-single cut and dual cut theory- as the maximum population value and minimum population value theory of Ernest J. McCormick. Therefore there is a need for a formula made using a few key factors, such as corresponding dimension, practical dimension, clearance, spare dimension, integrated dimension. These elements can be defined and used as formulas to calculate minimum residential area standards. Results: Assuming the results of the spatial variability in this study showed that it is possible to raise the standard of living in a terms of sustainable minimum size for the young, old and all residents. Implications: The government should set a minimum residential area standard with scientific grounds and set up a policy improving the life of people who live in an needy residential environment.

  • Recently, our society has been changing its population structure due to low birth rate along with the extension of life span due to the development of medical environment and improvement of living environment. It was not long before the population became older, and the problem of the elderly was amplified by generational conflict. The current generation of senior citizens could not afford to prepare for their own retirement income due to their children's education, marriage and housing problems, and is a generation alienated from the benefits of public income security. In addition, not only are they in poverty with rapid industrialization, informatization and economic instability, but they are also threatened with livelihood. The increase in elderly crimes arising from the elderly, who are less adaptable to our society dominated by materialism, is being highlighted as a new social issue. In this study, we are going to analyze the causes of violent and violent senior citizens' crimes in quality along with quantitative growth, and present criminal situations and preventive measures using 10 years of data, judging that this is a time when a national response is needed through a social discussion on crimes committed by senior citizens in our society, where the pace of aging is unprecedentedly fast in the world In order to achieve this research objective, various opinions and statistical data of our society where the standards of senior citizens are changing were reviewed, and analysis of crimes was conducted on literature utilizing data of the Supreme Public Prosecutor's Office, the National Police Agency, and the National Statistical Office, recent press releases, and existing research materials. In this study, we will diagnose crimes committed by senior citizens in various aspects, including the characteristics of the elderly and the view of the elderly in the present society, and explore the direction of development for the prevention of future crimes as well.

  • 건축기술의 눈부신 발전과 경제적 가치추구 등에 따른 국가 사회적 수요로 인하여 초고층 건축물의 건설물량은 이들 건축물에 대한 효과적인 피난안전대책을 정립하기도 전에 급속히 증가하는 추세이다. 우리나라는 2009년 7월 16일 재정된 건축법 시행령을 통하여 층수가 50층 이상이거나 높이가 200미터 이상인 건축물을 '초고층 건축물'로 규정하고, 이러한 건축물의 피난안전을 위하여 지상층으로부터 최대 30개 층마다 설치하는 대피공간을 '피난안전구역'으로 정의하였다. 이후 2010년 2월 18일 개정령에서는 초고층 건축물의 피난안전구역을 건축물의 '피난층'으로 인정하기에 이르렀다. 그러나 피난대상인원 등에 따른 대피공간의 면적이나 구조 등 내부시설에 대한 설치기준이 없어 피난안전구역으로서의 충분한 신뢰성을 확보하지 못하고 있어 이에 대한 심층적 연구와 기준의 개선이 필요한 실정이다.

  • 최근 농협경제연구소에서 실시한 조사에 따르면 2013년 기준 축산농가 경영주의 고령화율은 44.3%로 3년새 4.6% 증가하였다. 고령화 정도는 65세 이상 인구가 총인구에서 차지하는 비율이 7% 이상일 때 고령화 사회라고 부르며 20% 이상이면 초고령 사회로 분류한다. 축종별 고령화 정도를 보면 산란계 농가의 고령화율이 49.2%(2013년 기준)로 가장 높게 나타났다. 또한, 후계자가 확보된 축산농가는 50.6%에 불과한 것으로 나타났다. 가업을 승계하는 젊은 양계인들이 없다면 국내 양계업의 미래도 없다고 봐야할 것이다. 낙원농장 김동규 사장은 청소년 시절부터 가업승계를 꿈꿔 왔고 양계산업의 큰 애착을 보이고 있다. 산란계농가 2세로 산업발전에 힘쓰고 있는 김 사장을 만나 농장운영 상황에 대해 들어보았다.
