In much geographical research on the elderly the older population is treated as a single age bloc. Data from Sydney are used to illustrate how this collective approach can bury significant spatially varying characteristics of age subgroups within the elderly population. Analysis of these subgroup variations is essential for effective targeting of services and programmes for the aged.
