Research project In focus of the project are the social, economic, physical and cognitive preconditions for a longer working life and a healthy ageing
Prolonging one’s working life and promoting active and healthy ageing have been suggested as one solution to the demands of a growing elderly population. However, one must consider the risk of larger disparities in socioeconomic and health in later life. Therefore, our broad research questions were as follows: • To what extent can a healthy and active life style promote physical and cognitive health in the later stage of life? • Do we see patterns of increasing disparities in health, life style patterns and socio-economic conditions? • What is the impact of work environment occupational complexity and employment history on the timing of retirement?
