Sample Project: SMU Centre for Research on the Economics of Ageing (CREA)

  • Objective:
    • CREA brings together top researchers in ageing and age-related issues from Singapore and abroad to conduct a long-term study of ageing in Singapore, with particular reference to retirement adequacy and its contributing factors.
  • Research Questions:
    • How well-prepared are Singaporeans to cope with the financial demands and related risks associated with ageing in this unprecedented and rapidly evolving environment?
    • What can Singapore do to enhance this preparedness?
  • Research infrastructure:
    • A unique longitudinal panel data set (Singapore Life PanelĀ®), a suite of purpose-driven models (Singapore Life Cycle Model) and new econometric methodology will provide the platform for ongoing investigation of economic issues for Singapore and other ageing populations.
