The future development of living standards of the retirees in Belgium. [:] an application of the static microsimulation model station



This paper develops a dynamic microsimulation model with static ageing to assess the consequences of the assumptions and hypothesis of the Federal Planning Bureau on the prospective adequacy of pensions. A less technical and shorter version of this text was published as Gijs Dekkers, 2000, L’évolution du pouvoir d’achat des retraités: Une application du modèle de microsimulation STATION. in: Pestieau, P., L. Gevers, V. Ginsburgh, E. Schokkaert, B. Cantillon, Réflexions sur l’avenir de nos Retraites, Garant, Leuven/Apeldoorn (also available in Dutch).
