  1. Moving, downsizing and housing equity consumption choices of older Australians

    Author(s): Stephen Whelan; Kadir Atalay; Garry Barrett; Rebecca Edwards

    Description: This study analyses current geographic mobility and downsizing behaviours among Australians aged over 55, and considers the barriers to, and consequences of downsizing. Retired Australians tend to retain high levels of housing wealth (rising to 49% of assets for homeowners aged 75+) and most choose not to downsize, either by moving to a smaller dwelling or a less-expensive home.

  3. Asset portfolio retirement decisions: the role of the tax and transfer system

    Author(s): Stephen Whelan; Kadir Atalay; Lachlan Dynan

    Description: This study examined how Australia’s tax and transfer system, especially in relation to the Age Pension, impacts on household retirement choices. As the population ages, fiscal challenges created when many individuals retire from working and paying tax to drawing government funded benefits and services present some stark policy choices. Understanding how retirement decisions are shaped by the tax and transfer system is essential to developing a system that allocates resources efficiently across the economy, is consistent with principles of equity and is sustainable. Any such tax system is likely to have important implications for housing choices and housing markets.
