Average age of reaching “old age” and retirement and the age after which people should not work over 20 hours a week: opinions from Russia and other European countries (Russia, Moscow)
The article compares opinions voiced by the Russians and citizens of other European countries on the age when one reaches “old age,” ideal age of retirement and the age after which people should not work more than 20 hours a week. The author uses data of the European social research conducted in 2006, showing differences in perspectives existing in various European countries on the “old age.” To a large extent these differences maybe explained by different images of “old people” in these countries; however, in all countries the ideal age of retirement is lower than the officially established one, and happens before one reaches “old age.” Russia is one of the countries where “old age” and “retirement” happen much earlier. The age of partial retirement, involving employment for less than 20 hours a week, is situated between the desired age of retirement and the coming of “old age.” Results of the study allowed formulating some directions in the employment politics with regards to the elderly, as well as concerning adaptation to the higher retirement age.
Key words: old age, retirement age, labor market, comparative research, European social research, Russia
