Client: Australian Research Council
Centre: Lincoln Centre
Start year: 2007
End year: 2010
Individuals, governments, and employers are becoming increasingly aware that baby boomers' retirement from the workforce will have a major bearing on their own economic and social wellbeing and also the future of younger generations. The national Ageing Baby Boomers in Australia project is focused on individuals born between 1946 and 1958. It will generate an innovative and comprehensive body of knowledge that informs constructive action for better retirement. The research will provide groundbreaking knowledge on baby boomers' retirement processes from preparations and decision-making through to the consequences for the early years of retirement. Comparisons will be made with comparable data from the USA.
