FACTAGE – Fairer Active Ageing for Europe

The FACTAGE project examines emerging inequalities in Europe’s ageing societies, with a specific focus on labour markets, (healthy) life expectancy and subjective well-being. The FACTAGE consortium recognizes these as major societal challenges which can be addressed by innovative evidence-based policymaking. The aim is to identify policies that can best promote fairness within and between generations.

Statistics Austria plays an active role in answering the questions regarding socio-economic differences in (healthy) life expectancy, skill mismatch of older workers, and the association between quality of life and retirement.
