The Ready for Ageing Alliance has published a report called 'The myth of the baby boomer' which highlights that among the baby boomer population there is significantly more diversity than is often recognised. It also challenges assumptions being made about the group of our population often described as "boomers". Read more here.
Two new reports launched by CARDI (Thursday 12 June, 2014) reveal stark inequalities in wealth and income among older people in Ireland.
The research finds that while older people possess significant wealth in terms of assets, large income differences exist between the richest and poorest older people and this gap is widening over time. The reports stress the need to address inequalities among older people and ensure that the poorest older people are protected against cuts to income.
