Aging Unequally? The First Look at Wealth Inequality in India.

Thursday, 24th May, 2018 13:00-14:30
Open-Lab, 4th floor, East Building, Mita Campus, Keio University
Prof. Jin kook Lee is a professor of economics at the University of Southern California. She focuses on economics of aging, which has become increasingly interdisciplinary in recent years. She has co-led the development of two multidisciplinary, longitudinal population surveys, the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging (KLoSA) and the Longitudinal Aging Study in India (LASI). She also leads an international data harmonization project which makes a platform for population survey data on aging from 31 countries around the world.
During her presentation, she will introduce new findings. Recently Prof. Lee examined economic resources of Indian older adults and inequality across different segments of the population using the baseline Longitudinal Aging Study in India. She also investigated how individuals’ economic status within the household, based on their contribution to household income and asset holding, relates to influence in household decision-making as well as to health and wellbeing outcomes.
