Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a framework or a 'Chart of Accounts' that allows users to a) track the participation of older Australians (aged 55 years & over) in paid and unpaid work; and b) estimate the value of economic and social contributions by older Australians as well as the value of the losses for not utilising the knowledge and skills that older Australians have built up over a lifetime. Users can also make predictions of future contributions and participation in paid and unpaid work by using existing data as the baseline.
