  • Past, Present and Future of Mature Age Labour Force Participation in Australia: How Do Regions Differ?

    This report examines long-term trends, current patterns and future projections of mature age labour force participation in Australia, with a focus on regional differences. The study shows that there have been strong increases in mature age employment in recent years, particularly among females. Presently, mature age labour force participation is highest in Western Australia and the ACT but is lowest in Tasmania and South Australia. Also, full-time employment by mature age people is more common in capital cities than non-metropolitan areas.

    The report projects that the ageing of the population will slow labour supply growth throughout Australia, most significantly in Tasmania and South Australia. This highlights the need for governments, industry and employers to hasten strategies to support participation of mature age people in the labour force.

    Working Beyond 65 - What's Realistic? The Influence of Health on Longer Working Lives 

    This report explores the relationship between health and remaining in the workforce past the age of 65 in Australia. It shows that people in good health are almost twice as likely to be employed as those with a chronic health condition. The report also finds that 80% of people working with a chronic health condition earn $500 or less per week, compared to 54% of those without a health condition. The most common conditions affecting people in this age group are arthritis and related disorders, hypertension, back problems, diabetes and heart disease. A concerning finding from the study is that many employed people with a chronic health condition believe that the income they earn is not enough to allow them to retire.

    This report complements a study published by the National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre in November 2013, A widening gap: The financial benefits of delaying retirement.

    A Juggling Act: Older Carers and Paid Work in Australia

    This research details recent evidence in Australia about the issues facing older carers who are in the workforce or would like to be working. The number of Australians who balance work and unpaid caring is growing due to population ageing, longer working lives and the increasing responsibility of families to care for older people. The study finds that over half of carers of an adult are in paid work. Furthermore, 36% of carers who do not work state that their caring prevents them from working. The report also details the challenges faced by many older carers in accumulating superannuation and accessing training opportunities for the workforce.

    The report explores what factors carers believe would enable them to work or work more. Flexible working arrangements, such as flexible hours and job sharing, in particular would help a large proportion of carers to have greater engagement in the labour market.

    A Widening Gap: The Financial Benefits of Delaying Retirement

    This report measures the financial benefits of working longer on the retirement savings of Australians. The report finds that people who continue working throughout their 60s have 1.8 times the household net worth of those who are not employed. The impact of working longer is particularly noticeable for financial assets, which increase almost $60,000 over four years for people who continue working, but decline slightly over the same period for people out of work. The study also finds that the financial benefits of a prolonged work life are particularly strong for people with a chronic health condition. The authors emphasise the importance of making workplaces more accessible for people with poor health, to assist their long-term financial wellbeing.

    A Squeeze on Spending? An Update on Household Living Costs for Senior Australians

    This report examines household cost of living pressures among Australia’s over 50s population. In the five years to March 2013 the prices of several essential items increased at more than double the inflation rate, such as electricity which rose by 83%. Certain population groups are struggling with these higher costs, in particular low-income households who are spending over 80% of their disposable income on essential items. These higher prices result in greater difficulty in paying utility bills, with almost a quarter of a million senior households saying they have been unable to pay their bills on time. Findings also indicate that many households have cut back on some essential and non-essential items because of increased spending on certain key essentials.

    Understanding Senior Australians and their Communities: Findings from a Nationwide Survey

    This study examines the experiences of senior Australians in their communities, including their involvement in local organisations, their feelings of safety, and their overall satisfaction with living in their community. Encouragingly, a high proportion of seniors indicate satisfaction with their community and significant levels of engagement in community activities. However certain population groups face some degree of social isolation, including as those from lower socioeconomic groups and with poorer health.

    Age Discrimination in the Labour Market: Experiences and Perceptions of Mature Age Australians

     This report explores age discrimination in the Australian labour market using findings from a survey of people aged 45-74 years. The findings reveal that 16% of Australian workers in this age group reported that they have been directly told they are too old for a job, and 36% of job seekers reported that they have experienced indirect forms of age discrimination. Perceptions of age discrimination are high, with 83% of job seekers agreeing that it is an issue in the Australian labour market. Consequently, these perceptions have discouraged many people from looking for work, demonstrating that age discrimination is a significant barrier to mature age employment.

    Long Term Care Insurance: A Survey of Providers' Attitudes

    Description: http://productiveageing.com.au/userfiles/image/LTCI.pngThis latest research report examines the potential of a long term care insurance (LTCI) market in Australia from the perspective of providers. The providers surveyed included senior officers of life insurers, life reinsurers and major financial services consultants. The report explores these providers’ attitudes to LTCI and the barriers to its implementation in Australia. The providers indicated in-principle support for the development of LTCI in Australia, however many reported significant demand-side barriers to its establishment. Some of the demand-side barriers include uncertainty about the extent of consumer demand for such a product in Australia, because households have other risks to insure for.

    Staying Connected: Social Engagment and Wellbeing Among Mature Age Australians

    This study explores the wellbeing of senior Australians, how it differs between age groups, and how it relates with their social engagement. The report finds that older people (i.e., those aged 70-89 years) have the highest overall life satisfaction, as well as comfort with their standard of living and feelings of freedom about decisions regarding how they live their lives. This is despite having poorer self-reported health than younger counterparts. The research is based on a survey of over 2,000 members of National Seniors Australia aged 50-89 years.

    Relocation to a Retirement Village: Who Considers Relocation and What are People Looking for?

    The motivations of seniors when considering whether or not to live in a retirement village are examined in this research report. Authored by researchers from The Australian National University and Flinders University, the report is based on a survey of over 500 people aged 55 years and over. Some of the factors encouraging consideration of a retirement village are assistance in case of declining health and convenient location to facilities, while factors likely to discourage a move are a fear of losing independence and concerns about privacy. These findings are important to inform aged care providers of the requirements of potential future residents in the context of changing health needs of the population and increasing demand for aged care.
