Project description

 

We analyse the consequences of the workers’ decision to continue working or retire on overall well-being. First, we focus on the consequences of the outcome (being employed or retired) for individual well-being (measures as life satisfaction and as agency). Second, we investigate the degree of involuntariness in the decision to continue working. The research is based on the longitudinal micro data of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE).
