Topic: Explanations for the Decline in Spending at Older Ages

Speaker: Susann Rohwedder (RAND Corporation)

Susann Rohwedder is a senior economist at the RAND Corporation and associate director of the RAND Center for the Study of Aging. Her research focuses on the economics of aging in the areas of household consumption and saving behavior, retirement, long-term care, expectation formation, and subjective well-being.

Rohwedder has written on the impact of public pensions on household saving; the adequacy of retirement resources of U.S. households near retirement; the effect of retirement on cognitive ability; spending and saving patterns among the older population; the lifetime risk of nursing home entry and associated out-of-pocket expenditures; and various topics involving individuals’ expectations about future outcomes. Other papers deal with data quality and survey methods. Rohwedder has extensive experience in survey design and data collection: she is jointly responsible for the design of the HRS Consumption and Activities Mail Survey, led the design and collection of over 60 waves for the Financial Crisis Surveys fielded on the RAND American Life Panel and plays a leading role in the design and operations of the monthly data collections in the ongoing Singapore Life Panel.

Rohwedder is a research fellow of NETSPAR (Network for Studies on Pensions, Aging, and Retirement) in the Netherlands, serves on the Survey Committee of the German Socio-Economic Panel and is associate editor of the Journal of the Economics of Ageing.
