Advanced multidisciplinary analysis of new data on ageing


New multidisciplinary and cross-nationally comparable micro data are currently being collected on the medical, psychological, and socio-economic aspects of ageing. This project will bring together scientists from many disciplines that will use advanced econometric and statistical methods to analyse these micro data. The aim of the analyses is to obtain a better understanding of the complex interactions between economic, health, psychological and social factors determining the quality of life of the elderly, and of the behavioural responses ("feedback effects") of elderly individuals to public policy concerning for example pension and health care system design. We will develop cross-nationally comparable indicators for key concepts relevant to EU-policy such as disability status, retirement incentives, savings adequacy, and well being of the elderly. We will link these indicators to member state and Union policies.
