Hide / Show Abstract

Incomes of older people are generally lower than those of the population, even when differences in household size are taken into account. On average in OECD countries, over-65s had incomes of 86% of the population as a whole in the late 2000s. Older people’s incomes grew faster than the population’s between the mid-1990s and the late 2000s in 18 out of 27 countries where data are available. In most OECD countries, public transfers provide the bulk of income in old age.
