In Health at Older Ages, a distinguished team of economists analyzesthe foundations of disability decline, quantifiesthis phenomenon in economicterms, and proposes what might be done to accelerate future improvements in the health of our most elderly populations." "This breakthrough volume argues that educational attainment, high socioeconomic status, an older retirement age, and accessible medical care have improved the health and quality of life of seniors. Along the way, it outlines the economic benefits of disability decline, such as an increased rate of seniors in the workplace, relief for the healthcare system and caregiving families, and reduced medical expenses for the elderly themselves. Health at Older Ages will be an essential contribution to the debate about meeting the medical needs of an aging nation."--BOOK JACKET." ;
