Elsevier, Boissonneault, M. and Rios, P., 2021. Changes in healthy and unhealthy working-life expectancy over the period 2002–17: a population-based study in people aged 51–65 years in 14 OECD countries. The Lancet Healthy Longevity, 2(10), pp.e629-e638.
In response to population ageing, most countries within the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are planning increases to their pension age. To ensure the effectiveness of such measures, scholars have advocated for continued monitoring of healthy working-life expectancy. However, estimates are limited to a few countries during limited periods of time. Our study aims to estimate healthy and unhealthy working-life expectancy in 14 OECD countries at three points in time between 2002 and 2017.
