Australia's ageing population : how important are family structures? /

by Walker, Agnes | National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1997Description: v, 58 p. ; 21 cm.Other title: NATSEM. Discussion paper ; no. 19.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 1997 Includes bibliographical references.Summary: In Australia, as in most Western economies, concerns about the impact of the ageing of the population have led to a series of policy initiatives that generally aim to assign greater responsibility to individuals for the costs associated with ageing. ; Analyses of the effects of ageing published to date have tended to rely on aggregate projections of population and age structures. Interdependencies between individuals have rarely been taken into account, and it is only in some recent studies that the complex relationship between family structures and the size of government social expenditure has been recognised. Such studies cite broad statistics on the significant support that older people offer their families and on the importance of family members as carers for the aged. ; In this paper traditional approaches to studying the effects of ageing in the population are reviewed and a complementary approach, using dynamic microsimulation, is discussed. The advantage of dynamic microsimulation is that, in projecting future population patterns, the life cycles of individuals can be tracked, along with their family characteristics (such as spouses, children and grandparents) and household characteristics (including finances and wealth accumulation). ; The paper concludes with an account of the development work on dynamic microsimulation modelling at NATSEM, indicating the areas where this tool will be best able to advance understanding of age related policy issues.Availability: (1)
