Short description

Previous studies have shown that a longer working life is good for both society and individuals. The retirement age survey from 2011 argues that continued welfare requires us to work further up the age, but there is a need for new labor market strategies if the retirement age is raised. The study provides a knowledge base for such strategies. The project was carried out in collaboration with Statistics Sweden and included examinations and comparisons of different registers.
