Economical and Living Standard of Pensioners, at National Level and in the Jiu Valley Area


  • Roxana Pleșa

    () (University of Petrosani, Romania)


The level of pensions in Romania has been a favourite topic of debate and analysis by experts and the media, since 1990 until now. Aging and reducing the number of jobs produce structural changes in socio-economic terms over the active and inactive population. The growing number of pensioners, which exceeded the number of employees in the economy related to the level of economic and social development of our country, has led to the inability to create a social system for older people able to provide a decent income for them. The phenomenon requires concrete and concerted social action to influence developments in the sense of autonomy and welfare of life of elderly people, for a healthy aging and to ensure a good quality of life.
