Project: The dataset requested will be used to look at the association between work and health among older workers. In those that are in the 'unemployed' section of the age bracket, their type of unemployment will be looked at i.e. whether they are retired or disabled. These individuals and their data will then be compared not only to themselves in the wave 1 data but also to the similar dataset of wave 2 TILDA. Those that were employed are scrutinised to see if they are still employed or if they are retired etc. and why? Those that expressed an intention to retire, have they in fact retired and those that retired, had they expected to? Health status of these people will be compared also to see did this influence their employment status collected in wave 2. Those that were unemployed will also be investigated to see how their status has changed, if it has.

Completion: 2016

Project: I wish to explore whether the data can be used to examine relating to health and wellbeing at work, in particular issues of work-related ill health. If feasible, this analyses will be undertaken as part of a research programme between the Health and Safety Authority and the ESRI on Health, Safety and Well-ebeing at work. This project will run until the end of 2015. I also wish to use the data to explore issues of gender inequality in later life including topics of labour market experiences, income (including pensions), poverty, and social exclusion.  

This research project is also recorded under the themes: Gender Equality, Quality of Life and Wellbeing  and Poverty, Socioeconomic Status and Inequality.
