Housing characteristics and neighbourhood context are considered risk factors for COVID-19 mortality among older adults. The aim of this study was to investigate how individual-level housing and neighbourhood characteristics are associated with COVID-19 mortality in older adults. Elderly people in Stockholm who live with a person of working age have a higher risk of COVID-19-death. 60 per cent higher: this is how much higher the risk of dying from COVID-19 is for individuals aged 70 and older in Stockholm County who live in the same household as a person of working age compared with the elderly who live with other old-aged individuals. Crowded living conditions are not a risk factor in themselves for the elderly.
