Employment of the elderly



The WP assesses the impact of ageing on the future size and structure of the labour force. The future size of the labour force is determined by changes in the size and age structure of the population and by changes in age-and sex-specific participation rates. An increase in labour force participation rates at higher ages is necessary for achieving a sustainable economic development. An analysis of cross-country differences and changes over time identifies the main determinants of differences in participation rates by age and sex.
