Work Capacity and Longer Working Lives in Belgium
Chapter in NBER book Social Security Programs and Retirement around the World: The Capacity to Work at Older Ages (2017), David A. Wise, editor (p. 35 - 58)
We explore the link between health indicators and employment rates of the population aged 55 or more. Our focus lies on work capacity as a key determinant of employment. Using cohort mortality information as a proxy for overall health outcomes, we establish a substantial untapped work capacity in the population 55+. Even stronger results are obtained when relying on individual-level objective and subjective health and socioeconomic parameters as predictors.
