Editorial Reviews

Focuses on economic and social implications of aging at the individual and societal levels. First looks at basic demographic issues, then examines areas of family relations, health, and economic security. Considers the degree of preparedness for old age by different elderly populations, and discusses saving behavior, incomes of older women, and how the tax-transfer system affects the incentive of Canadians to save for retirement. Contributors work in fields such as econometrics, sociology, social work, and gerontology. Material originated in a program of research that was initiated in 1995, centered at McMaster University, Canada, and involving participants from several other universities. Denton teaches economics at McMaster University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
