Essays on labor force participation, aging, income and health

This thesis collects five studies that are related to population aging. Population aging is a predictable trend. However, unfortunately there are no standard recipes that describe how our society should deal with the social and economic consequences of aging. These five studies aim to contribute to the understanding of aging related issues.
