    Abstract

    Si nos sociétés ont pris conscience de l’inéluctabilité du processus de vieillissement de la population, elles commencent également à appréhender la mesure de ses implications économiques et sociales. Afin d’introduire cette commission sur la cessation d’activité, il nous a semblé utile de tracer un bref aperçu des éléments démographiques qui sous-tendent ce processus. Ces éléments, tels l’espérance de vie ou le taux de natalité, sont les causes fondamentales du vieillissement. Toutefois, nous ne pouvons agir sur eux que de manière très marginale, que ce soit au niveau individuel ou au travers d’une décision politique, et de plus nous ne pouvons guère espérer qu’un effet à beaucoup plus long terme. Les variables économiques ont également un impact non négligeable, et peuvent être influencées plus significativement. Nous montrerons par exemple l’importance de l’âge moyen effectif de cessation d’activité sur les indicateurs utilisés pour cerner la charge présente et future représentée par la population âgée. Enfin, l’état de santé est encore un facteur essentiel dans la prise de décision concernant une cessation précoce d’activité. L’Enquête de Santé par Interview réalisée en 1997 nous permet de jeter un certain éclairage sur les conditions de santé de la population la plus concernée par ce type de décision : les 50-64 ans.
