Ηλικία συνταξιοδότησης και θνησιμότητα στην Ελλάδα και σε χώρες της Ευρώπης το 2015
Age at retirement and mortality in Greece and other European countries in 2015
Nowadays, one of the most important issues in people's lives is retirement age. In this dissertation we will deal with retirement age and mortality intensity in countries of Europe and Greece in 2015. For the implementation of our research we use data from the 6th wave of the SHARE study, that was implemented in 2015, and combine those with deaths that occurred within the next 2 years (until the 7th wave, 2017). The first chapter refers to the concepts of morbidity/mortality and the main causes of death in Europe and Greece. In addition, the standard and early pension schemes for Europe and Greece are being analysed. In chapter 2, we deal with the presentation and descriptive analysis of data from the SHARE survey. The analysis considers mortality levels and current employment status in conjunction with demographic and socio-economic variables, health status, risky health behaviours as well as retirement age. Chapter 3 includes the method and the analysis of models of logistic regression. Logistic regression models are implemented to assess the impact of certain variables on mortality as well as the effect of retirement age. Finally, in chapter 4 we present and discuss the conclusions resulting from the study and summarise the findings of the logistic regression analysis. People who are not limited in activities, have a lower likelihood of death than those who are restricted. Also, retirement age showed a decrease in the relative likelihood of mortality as age increases.
