    This Project is part of the following research programme/s:

    Longer lives


    Rising life expectancy and fiscal pressures on welfare systems of old age support have led to a focus on extended working lives. Although many older people welcome the opportunity to remain active longer, it is important that reforms do not result in rising inequalities. This project examines differentials in labour market activity at ages 60 and over, with a particular focus on differences by ethnic groups. Using UKHLS, the research also explores the interaction with health and disability and unpaid caregiving responsibilities. The research will be of direct relevance to the DWP 'Fuller Working Lives' Strategy.
