The Income and Wealth of Older Australians - Trends and projections

    Abstract

    This paper examines trends in the assets and incomes of older Australians
    between 1986 and 1998. The average wealth of older Australians almost
    doubled from $106,000 to $204,000 between 1985-86 and 1996-97.

    The average picture for older Australians masked major differences among
    them, as the after-inflation incomes of the bottom 25 per cent of older
    Australians remained stable over the 11 years, while the incomes of the top
    25 per cent rose.

    Projections suggest that while many older Australians will have insufficient
    resources to fund a comfortable retirement, others will have substantial
    assets to fall back on.
