Project Details


The projects aims to estimate the economic impacts of early retirement due to chronic conditions both to individuals and the community. Population ageing, premature retirement due to poor health and the need for increased labour force participation are perennial issues that have confronted successive governments and will continue to do so. The project will link datasets from a wide range of sources to create a large microsimulation model. This model will fill substantial gaps in the Australian evidence about chronic health issues that affect the workforce. The findings will inform planning of health care resources to enable maximum labour force participation to benefit both the individual and the government.
