This study on the elderly in the villages of Tamilnadu was analogous to the cross-national studies on ageing in the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Poland, Yugoslavia and Israel. It was preceded by a similar study on "Old People in Madras City". Data for this study was collected from June 4, 1974 to March 20, 1975.
The two studies were made possible by a research grant from the Social and Rehabilitation Service of the United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The report based on the study was first published in 1980. The title was "Older People in Rural Tamilnadu". All the copies of the book were distributed some years ago. Yet, enquiries on the book continue to be made by the researchers on ageing. Hence the present abridged version has been considered.
Niruta Publications came forward to publish the book in its abridged version and the Centre for the Welfare of the Aged (CEWA) at Chennai agreed to meet all expenses towards condensing the original book into its present form. I am grateful to both the organizations.
