Notes
  • This paper analyses the determinants of the retirement decision in Germany using microdata from the German Socio-Economic Panel over the period 1985-1995. Non-parametric and semi-parametric techniques have been used to describe the exit to retirement. Non-parametric estimates suggest that the incentive structure generated by the different social security schemes play a powerful role in the individual retirement decision.

De plus une mauvaise santé incite à un départ anticipé à la retraite, surtout dans le cadre d’une pension d’invalidité. Les incitations ...
