  • Articles and reports: 75-006-X201600114345

  • Articles and reports: 82-624-X201400114010
    Description:

    This article highlights how seniors aged 65 and older perceive their risk of falling. Perceptions of risk are examined in comparison with a senior’s actual risk of falling.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X201100111402
    Description:

    This study examines four distinct states of retirement among older Canadians: fully retired; partially retired; previously retired but returned to work; and never retired.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X201010811331
    Description:

    This article examines the extent to which family income of individuals in their mid-fifties is 'replaced' by other sources of income during the retirement years. It does so by tracking various cohorts of tax filers as they age from their mid-fifties to their late seventies and over. Earlier work examined this question for the 50% of the population with strong labour market attachment during their mid-fifties. This paper extends that work to include 80% to 85% of the population.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200611113175
    Description:

    Just as the responsibility of raising children is lifting, many families are facing a new challenge providing care to aging parents, relatives or friends. The intensity of work and eldercare can affect the work life balance of the caregiver. An examination of the prevalence and impact of caregiving among those aged 45 to 64, looking at the hours spent on both paid work and informal care of seniors.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200610213157
    Description:

    While the majority of Canadians aged 50 to 69 not in the labour force were retired in 2003, nearly half a million were not working for health-related reasons. The Canadian Community Health Survey is used to compare the health of working individuals aged 50 to 69 with their contemporaries who are not working, whether for health or other reasons. Chronic conditions and lifestyle choices are also examined.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200511013151
    Description:

    The Guaranteed Income Supplement is one of the pillars of Canada's safety net for seniors. Available to those with little or no income other than Old Age Security, it plays an integral part in reducing low income among those 65 and over. However, a misunderstanding of the rules and requirements has meant that some eligible seniors are missing out.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200510313137
    Description:

    Local government revenues are increasingly perceived as inadequate to fund the program responsibilities of municipalities. Property taxes (residential and non-residential) are by far the most important revenue source, accounting for 35% in 2003 (up from 30% in 1988). But, residential property taxes are commonly viewed as regressive in relation to income. This study uses the 2001 Census of Population to quantify the regressiveness of residential property taxes in Canadian municipalities, and to examine whether regressive taxes are generally attributable to lower-income seniors living in high-priced homes.

    Description:

    Since the 1980s, abuse of older Canadians has gained the attention of service providers, researchers, lobbyists, as well as policy makers. Abuse can include physical, psychological or financial mistreatment of adults over the age of 65 years. To date, a lack of data has made it difficult to quantify and truly understand the nature of abuse against older adults.
