Economics of Saving and Retirement in the U.S.

A MiCDA Research Signature Theme

The Health and Retirement Study and Panel Study of Income Dynamics provide rich data for analytical research on the economics of aging. Projects using these and other data explore a wide range of topics, including the effect of health and health insurance on retirement, accumulation of wealth, intergenerational transfers, and the effect of aging and cognition on economic behavior.
