Title
Retirement timing in Europe : the influence of work and life factors
Author
Abstract
This study considers the rational choice and life course theories to predict European retirement timing. It is relevant to compare mens and womens retirement decisions to determine whether they are influenced by work or by the interplay between work and familial, educational, and leisure life. An event history analysis of the European Community Household Panel (ECHP) suggests that work factors have a greater impact on European womens retirement timing than they do for men and that both mens and womens retirement timing is influenced by the interplay of work and life.
