Global Meeting on Population and the Generational Economy, August 2020
Presentation: Andrew Mason, Michael Abrigo, Hawaii's Generational Economy: Economic impacts of aging
Basic economic data for seniors, as well as children and prime-age adults, is limited unless economic data are organized by age. Otherwise, there is no comprehensive accounting of the resources available to seniors or how seniors are using the resources that are available to them. Moreover, data about transfers across generations are somewhat limited in standard economic accounts. Better data will help policymakers, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and seniors and their families assess whether seniors are achieving economic security, are experiencing deterioration or improvements in their economic circumstances, and are vulnerable to population aging. These issues are being addressed using Hawaii Transfer Accounts, a recently developed data source for analyzing generational economic issues.
