Abstract

In this paper we analyze the relationship between the employment of the young, exit of older people and retirement incentives using data from both the Spanish labor force survey and the Muestra Contínua de Vidas Laborales. Against a priori expectations, we do find some (weak) evidence of positive (negative) relationship between the employment (unemployment) of young and the labor force participation of the older population. However, we are unable to find a clear relationship between the employment of the young and the incentives to retirement created by the Spanish pension system. We believe this is so because retirement incentives have changed very little during the last two decades.
