Sommige rapporten kunnen ook hier geraadpleegd worden, evenals de nieuwsbrieven van de Short Term Update die tot 2015 werden gepubliceerd. U kunt op thema, publicatietype, auteur en jaar zoeken.

The AGIR project: Ageing, Health and Retirement in Europe - Use of health care and nursing care by the elderly: Data for Belgium [Working Paper 11-03]

This Working Paper reflects the contribution of the fpb to the second work package of the agir project, work package organized by the German diw. It collects in a first attempt a lot of data to approach the volume and evolution of the use of health and nursing care by the elderly. Yet the authors are well aware of the limitations of the present study which can certainly be improved by more detailed data and refinement of the concepts.

The study makes a distinction between care provided by institutions and informal care. This distinction is necessary because there are indications that the demand for institutional care is increasing not only due to ageing, but also due to changes in family structure. This work package also studies how the provision of care for the elderly has changed over time, as well as the link between labour market developments and informal care.


The output of this work package will be used in the second phase of the program, in which scenarios will be produced and consequences for demand for health care and pension decisions will be studied.
