Résumé:   [en] In this paper, we ask: How does social isolation shape dietary patterns among the elderly? Specifically, we investigate individual and neighborhood effects on the daily regularity and frequency of meals among retired people aged 60 and more in Paris and the inner suburbs. Individual-level factors include sociodemographic characteristics as well as objective and subjective measures of social isolation; neighborhood-level factors include socioeconomic status and food access. The paper is structured as follows. In Background & Hypotheses, we use insights from the sociology of aging and the elderly, and the scholarship on neighborhood effects and food deserts, to elaborate hypotheses. In Data & Methods, we provide information about data sources, variables, and missing data, and then turn to present descriptive statistics and the chosen analytic strategy. Model results are reported in Findings; shortcomings of the analysis are discussed in Limitations. In Discussion & Conclusion, we elaborate on the empirical and conceptual takeaways of the paper. Appendix 1 lists data sources.
