La retraite : un évènement protecteur pour la santé de tous

Abstract : Using data from the French Health and Professional Path survey, we show that retirement has positive effects on the health of less exposed individuals while yielding considerably greater improvements for workers retiring from highly demanding careers. The highest protective influence appears in the low­-skilled male population exposed to physical constraints, with a decline of 21.2 pp in the probability of declaring poor health, 16 pp in activity limitations and 13.7 pp in chronic diseases, and 8 pp in anxiety or depression. These results advocate the need for preventive measures aimed towards exposures to work strains and/or differentiated retirement schemes according to the nature and intensity of a pensioner's entire work life.
