Pathways to Retirement and Retirement Incentives in Sweden
We use a large panel data set (LINDA) to describe retirement behaviour in Sweden. The importance of different pathways to retirement is analysed. Survival functions for labor force participation of several groups in the labor force are estimated. We then provide a detailed analysis of economic incentives for additional work of older workers in Sweden inherent in the social security system, occupational pension schemes, labor market insurance programs, income taxes and housing allowances. The analysis shows the importance of these components of the income security system in forming the incentives.
