Changes in Income within a Cohort over the Later Life Course: Evidence for Income Status Convergence.
Prus, Steven G.
Canadian Journal on Aging, v21 n4 p495-504 Win 2002
Cross-sectional data on Canadians born 1924-1928 indicate that from ages 50-64, those who had early socioeconomic advantages improve absolute and relative income compared with others in the cohort. At ages 65-74, economic well-being of the advantaged and disadvantaged converges. Canada's pension systems seem to counter status effects. (Contains 25 references.) (SK)
