|dc.description.abstract||Our study continues previous research on poverty in old-age in Switzerland which has found that retired people working regularly are at a higher risk of being poor. We will extend this previous work by using additional data from a follow-up study that allows investigating the temporal dynamics of poverty among Swiss pensioners between 2011 and 2016.In doing so, we will test the impact of taking up a job on poverty trajectories between 2011and 2016, as well as that of ceasing an economic activity. The results will shed more light on the role of work in old-age in Switzerland: Whether it really is a necessity of economically vulnerable pensioners, or whether it can also be a manifestation of successful active ageing in Switzerland. Methodologically we will use data from the gerontological survey “Vivre-Leben-Vivere”(VLV) which was conducted in 2011 as well as the five-year follow up in 2016. We will assess how participant’s financial situation – operationalized in a binary poor vs. non-poor logic –has evolved between the two time-points and how an economic activity in 2011 affects the latter. In addition, we will assess how taking up or giving up a job between the time-points affects the risk of poverty in 2016.||de_CH|
