Topics examined and activities carried out under the project:

  • Survey questionnaire among older workers in Székesfehérvár and Budapest. The aim of the survey was to explore how older workers judge their working conditions, what their plans for retirement are, what would make them stay on the labour market longer, what financial circumstances they expect in their future life as pensioners, how far they plan to take part in family and social life, etc.
  • The evolution of the number of older drivers at the Oszkár Hungarian carpooling company. This illustrates the expected share of older workers in the gig economy. – Chances of older applicants to be interviewed for a job. Example of female job seekers.
  • A new approach to the active ageing index. Expert estimates and calculated indices.
