Full-text available
In the absence of broad-based formal health insurance and social protection systems in much of sub-Saharan Africa, the family acts as the key provider of support to older people. This paper furthers our understanding of family support mechanisms in the context of low-income countries by focusing on support from outside the household, which has been...
Article
To better evaluate the benefits of a possible increase in the normal retirement age, this article proposes to examine recent trends in the health status of Canadians between 45 and 70 years of age. Using the Sullivan method, trends from 2000 to 2014 in partial disability-free life expectancy (PDFLE) between the ages of 45 and 70 years are computed....
Conference Paper
The general absence of broad-based formal social protection systems in several SSA countries means that older adults in worsening health tend to be highly dependent on members of their households and families. While most recent studies have focused on living arrangements of older people, family transfers are poorly documented. This paper used data...

Although it is known that the proportion of immigrants among retirees is expected to increase in Canada, the recent portrait of this growing subpopulation has yet to be compiled. This project aims to fill this gap by presenting a descriptive portrait of retirees by immigration status.
Preprint
Population aging has become the center of many debates in the developed world and particularly in Canada. One such debate is about the role of immigration as a source of additional labor to fill the expected labor shortage. Whether there is a labor shortage or not, and whether population aging is its driver, and how effective has immigration been i...

Who is under-employed? ILO’s Framework: Persons in under-employment are those who during the short reference period: (1) were willing to work additional hours, (2) were available to do so, and (3) had worked less hours than a selected number of hours. Adjusted Framework: Persons in under-employment are those who during the reference year: (1) were...

L’une des conséquences du vieillissement démographique est le ralentissement de la croissance du nombre des actifs sur le marché du travail, voire même une décroissance. Il apparaît dès lors tout indiqué d’adopter des politiques qui inciteraient les travailleurs à repousser le moment de leur retraite, d’autant plus que l’espérance de vie ne cesse d...

According to the most recent projections of the Canadian population, there will be an increase in the proportion of the elderly population until the end of the observation period in 2063. In the past, the changes of the Canadian population have occurred with changes in life trajectories of Canadians. This project will explore the relationship betwe...

Full-text available
The idea of raising the statutory retirement age in Canada is part of a wider policy debate around the challenges posed by population ageing. Some political leaders, concerned to keep costs under control and to mitigate the effects of slower growth in the labour force, argue in favour of raising the retirement age to maintain the viability of the C...
Article
Canada is expecting rapid population aging over the coming decades, a fact that has led many observers to question the sustainability of its pension systems. The effects of population aging, however, could be mitigated by an extension of the working life. This article presents the results of a critical review of Canadian knowledge about the determi...

Le financement des regimes publics de retraite est au coeur des preoccupations reliees au vieillissement demographique. Confrontes a cette problematique, plusieurs pays ont d’ailleurs releve l’âge ouvrant droit a une pleine rente de retraite. Toutefois, on note un report relativement important de l’âge effectif de la retraite au Canada depuis le mi...

This article examines changes since 1976 in a number of indicators that show the aging of Canadian workers and a growing number of workers delaying retirement. The increase in delayed retirement is consistent with an increase in the employment rate of older workers, however, it is at odds with statistics indicating that the average retirement age h...
Article
Aging of baby boomers and increasing life expectancy will accelerate growth in the number of elderly people over the next three decades. Meeting the required needs of elderly people in assistance to perform activities of daily living will be a major concern of Canadian public policy in the future. Data from two Canadian national surveys were used t...

This paper projects annual growth rates between 2001 and 2031 in the need for informal and formal support among elderly Canadians with disabilities. The paper also discusses the policy implications of the increasing demand for informal caregivers. Using Statistics Canada's LifePaths microsimulation model, these projections incorporate disability ra...
Book
A fundamental issue facing the global community is meeting the challenges of population aging and achieving healthy aging to maintain an active older population and reduce the number of disabled people. The focus of this book is on theoretical issues and empirical findings related to trends and determinants of healthy aging, including factors relat...
Article

Projection of future needs for home care services typically uses current utilisation patterns and population ageing. Accurately assessing this need is much more complex since disability patterns among the elderly are changing and availability of caregivers is affected by changes in family structure. This paper projects annual growth rates between 2...

Data are from Cycle 11 of the General Social Survey, conducted in 1996. This analysis focuses on 1,089 respondents aged 65 or older who, because of a long-term health problem, required assistance to rema...
Article
Poco si sa circa gli effetti del divorzio in tarda età, anche perché il numero dei divorziati è ancora relativamente basso dopo i 65 anni. Ma, negli ultimi 25 anni, il divorzio è aumentato notevolmente e ci si attende che questo trend continui finché le generazioni del baby-boom non raggiungeranno le età anziane. Tale incremento potrebbe essere amp...
Article
Measures of healthy life expectancy have been developed over the last thirty years to evaluate the quality of life of an increasing life expectancy. These measures are usually accounting for prevalence rates of either disability or physical dependence in performing everyday activities. Although they allow for a better assessment of quality of life,...
Chapter
As the 21st Century nears, industrialized countries have reached very low levels of mortality and fertility. This phenomenon is characterised by demographers as the last stage of the demographic transition theory. These almost universal levels were reached, for the most part, thanks to technological advances that only a century ago were not imagina...

PIP: "The current aging of Quebec's population is expected to intensify in the beginning of the next century. By 2031, seniors could represent 25 percent of the total population, or nearly two million individuals. It is vital that policy-makers more fully grasp the multiple aspects of this much-feared eventuality. To this end, the aim of this study...
Article
This paper examines the effect of cohort heterogeneity upon the potential needs for assistance in ADL and IADL of an aging population. Variables that are important predictors of the differentiating pattern of perceived needs in the older population are subject to on-going changes as a result of cohort differentiation and cohort succession in the ol...
Article
RÉSUMÉ Le vieillissement démographique qui affecte actuellement le Québec est appelé à s'intensifier au début du prochain siècle. Les personnes âgées pourraient représenter 25 pour cent de la population totale en 2031, soit près de deux millions d'individus. Il est essentiel, pour les planificateurs, de saisir au mieux les diverses dimensions de ce...

Estimate the net fiscal cost of Immigration by extending the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) methodology to measure the allocation of public transfer inflows and taxes to the State by ages, for immigrants and natives.
Project
This project attempts to account for personal behaviors on the labor market by measuring working life duration as the labor supply from an individual perspective, decomposing it into behavioral and structural effect in order to evaluate how much behavioral component has contributed compared to demographic components.
Project
Examine the association between living arrangements and the probability that an older adult in Senegal would receive intergenerational transfers from their adult children. Research questions: •To what extent are elders in Senegal receiving intergenerational transfers in response to their living arrangements? •Does living alone or only with their spouse, rather than coresiding with non-dependent adult children influence differently the receipt of intergenerational financial or material transfers? •How does coresidence with, and proximity to, non-dependent adult children influence the receipt and the amount of the transfers to the older person? •Does coresidence with non-dependent adult children have more significant effects on intergenerational transfers for elderly women than men or in rural areas than urban one?
