Abstract

Les gérontologues sociaux ont remarqué que le déterminisme économique suscite des problèmes à l'égard de l'élaboration des politiques et qu'il existe trop peu de données émanant d'autres sources. Le but de cette recherche est d'illustrer comment la recherche sociale peut alimenter le débat actuel entourant la question de l'augmentation de l'âge de la retraite, les mérites de la retraite partielle et la pertinence des avantages accordés aux aînés. On présente une analyse de données sur des travailleurs à la retraite en utilisant l'Enquête sur le vieillissement et l'autonomie à titre d'exemple sur la façon dont la recherche sociale peut avoir un effet sur les diverses modalités du régime de retraite de l'État. /// Social gerontologists have observed that economic determinism is problematic to the policy-making process and that there are too few inputs from other sources. The purpose of this research is to illustrate how social research can inform the current pension debate which revolves around the issues of raising the age of retirement, the merits of partial retirement and the adequacy of the new Seniors Benefit. An analysis of data on post-retirement workers is presented using the Survey of Ageing and Independence as an example of how social research can make a difference to choices about public pension policies.
