Health Capacity to Work at Older Ages: Evidence from Spain
NBER Working Paper No. 21973
Issued in February 2016
NBER Program(s):Aging, Health Economics
In a world with limited PAYGO financing possibilities this paper explores whether older Spanish individuals have the health capacity to work longer. For that purpose we use Milligan-Wise and Cutler-Meara Cutler-Meara- Richards-Shubik simulation methods. Our results suggest that Spanish workers have significant additional capacities to extend their working careers.
