Abstract:

This chapter explores the relationship between poverty and aging, in terms ofits measurement and trends, as well as its alleviation, with particular attentionto the most vulnerable individuals at each end of the age distribution. The measurement addresses both the definition of poverty and its aggregationover various age groups. The trends highlight a significant reduction inpoverty among the elderly and a gradual increase in poverty among childrenand working age individuals, both in the United States and across the greaterdeveloped world, over the past fifty years. Two important secular changes arealso detected: a college spike and a retirement dip in poverty across the agedistribution. The alleviation of poverty is then attributed to working in thelabor market and to social expenditure and its associated policies, which havebeen especially effective for the elderly. A summary and a discussion followthat set forth an agenda for further research and policy.
