[fre] Nous estimons, à partir de données administratives françaises , l’Échantillon Interrégimes des Retraités, la mortalité différentielle entre 1997 et 2001 de générations nées entre 1906 et 1930 selon le montant des pensions de retraite. La mortalité différentielle est significative pour les hommes mais ne l’est pas pour les femmes. Dans notre échantillon, un doublement du revenu entraîne une baisse du taux instantané de mortalité d’environ 10% pour les hommes. Une évaluation illustrative montre que si la mortalité différentielle ne remet pas en cause, d’un point de vue monétaire, le caractère redistributif du système de retraite français elle semble en affecter significativement l’amplitude. [eng] Pensions and Differential Mortality. We estimate, using French administrative data from the "Échantillon Interrégimes des Retraités" (all-regime pensioner sample), the differential mortality between 1997 and 2001 of the generations born between 1906 and 1930 according to the size of retirement pension. Differential mortality is significant for men but not for women. In the sample, a doubling of income leads to a decrease in the instantaneous mortality rate of around 10 % for men. An illustrative calculation shows that while differential mortality does not call into question from an income standpoint the redistributive character of the French pension system, it nevertheless seems to have a significant impact on its amplitude.
