Determinants of healthy ageing in work and retirement: Preliminary findings presented at the ERA-AGE conference in London

On 10th November 2015, preliminary findings from the IDEAR network’s JCRA project ‘Retirement and Heathy Ageing: Determinants of healthy ageing in work and retirement’ were presented at the ERA-AGE conference in London, along with findings from other related projects across Europe and in Canada. This was the first time that data on socioeconomic differences in healthy life expectancy based on longitudinal data were presented publicly, and the results indicate that people in lower socioeconomic strata spend less time in good health between the ages of 50 and 75 than others. Adverse health behaviours had an even more pronounced effect on healthy life expectancy. You can see the slides from our presentation here, Retirement and Healthy Ageing (269)
