Preventing Ageing Unequally
This report examines how the two global mega-trends of population ageing and rising
inequalities have been developing and interacting, both within and across generations.
Taking a life-course perspective the report shows how inequalities in education, health,
employment and earnings compound, resulting in large differences in lifetime earnings
across different groups. It suggests a policy agenda to prevent, mitigate and cope
with inequalities along the life course drawing on good practices in OECD countries
and emerging economies.
