Income inequality in the elderly population is serious in the total income, public income and market income areas. Second, after excepting for public income in total income, Gini coefficient is 0.4864. after excepting for market income in total income, Gini coefficient is 0.3609. And after excepting for family income in total income, Gini coefficient is 0.5784. When market and public income are excepted from total income, Gini coefficient alleviate. Therefore, market income and public income are the major causes of income inequality in the elderly. But, family income alleviate the income inequality in the elderly. In order to alleviating the income inequality of the elderly, we must try to increasing the market income. For example, government must to supply job opportunities for the elderly of low-income.

  • 전 세계적으로 노령화 문제가 사회적 이슈로 대두되고 있는 가운데, 노인이 느끼는 전반적인 삶의 질 (Quality of Life, QoL) 이 하락하는 문제가 사회 전반에 걸쳐 중요한 문제로 인식되고 있다. 이에 다양한 형태로 발생하고 있는 노인들의 문제를 해결하기 위하여 노인학, 사회 복지학 등의 분야에서 많은 연구가 진행되고 있다. 이 중 노인의 사회적 관계 (Social Network, SN) 를 강화, 확장하여 노인의 삶의 만족도 향상을 추구하고자 하는 연구를 찾아볼 수 있다. 이러한 관점에서 노인의 사회적 관계를 인터넷을 이용해 개선함으로써, 노인의 삶의 질을 향상시키고자 하는 것이 본 연구의 궁극적인 목표이다. 이에 본 연구의 세부적인 목적은 현재 젊은 층을 중심으로 많이 사용되고 있는 SNS 를 노인들이 사용하지 않는 이유에 대한 분석, 노인을 위한 SNS 의 핵심적인 기능적, 서비스적 요소를 파악하는데 있다. 이를 위해 현재 인터넷을 잘 활용하고 있는 60 세 이상의 노인 22 명을 대상으로 개별 인터뷰, 참가자가 사용하는 서비스 분석, FGI 의 3 가지 방식으로 데이터를 수집하였다. 이후 수집한 데이터를 이용하여 정성적 분석 방법으로 Casual Network 를 도출하였으며, 정량적 분석 방법인 Laddering 분석으로 Hierarchical Map 도출하여 비교하였다. 또한 도출된 결과가 노인들만의 특징인지를 파악하기 위하여 대학생, 직장인 각 10 명씩을 대상으로 노인을 대상으로 한 연구 방식과 동일한 방법으로 데이터를 수집, 분석 하였다. 최종적으로 본 연구는 사회감성적 선택 이론 (Socioemotional Selectivity Theory, SST)를 바탕으로 인터넷에서의 Social Network 활동도 오프라인과 유사한 특징을 가지고 있으며, 현재 친하게 지내고 있는 사람들을 중심으로 SN 을 강화시키려 하는 강화형 타입과 새로운 SN을 생성하기 위하여 노력하는 확장형 타입으로 구분할 수 있었다. 추후 이러한 특징들을 반영하여 노인들을 위한 SNS 가 지녀야 할 기능적, 시스템적 요소를 제안하고, 추후 연구 및 SNS 개발과 관련한 계획을 정리하였다.
