Pathways to Retirement and Retirement Incentives in Sweden
() and Ingemar Svensson
Abstract: We use a large panel data set (LINDA) to describe
retirement behaviour in Sweden. The importance of different pathways to
retirement is analysed. Survival functions for labor force participation of
several groups in the labor force are estimated. We then provide a detailed
analysis of economic incentives for additional work of older workers in
Sweden inherent in the social security system, occupational pension
schemes, labor market insurance programs, income taxes and housing
allowances. The analysis shows the importance of these components of the
income security system in forming the incentives.
