Where have all the workers gone? Many young people have gone into education and training, which should bring longer-term benefits; no statistics yet Emigration from RoI rose by 20,000 to 65,000 (CSO)  Foreign workers left – 46,700 were non Irish  18,400 Irish nationals left  Of those who left, 91% were aged 15-44 and 60% were male  Knock-on effect: Ireland‟s population aged 20-29 fell by 32,500 or 4.3% in one year, with implications for age dependency ratios 19

Sickness and retirement (UK)  Survey of retired men by Parker (1980) and Walker‟s (1985) study of early retirement in Sheffield both found that ill-health had an important influence on the retirement decision  Analyses of the ONS Retirement Survey (Meghir and Whitehouse, 1995), suggested that ill-health was one of the main reasons for retirement before state pension age  Tanner‟s (1997) analysis of the 1994 Retirement Survey found that 27% of those who left the labour force before SPA cited their own ill-health as the main reason; a further 5% attributed the decision to the ill-health of others See Lissenburgh, Stephen and Smeaton, Deborah (2003) Employment transitions of older 23

Work is good for your health but... “The relationship between employment and health is close, enduring and multi- dimensional. Being without work is rarely good for one‟s health, but while „good work‟ is linked to positive health outcomes, jobs that are insecure, low-paid and that fail to protect employees from stress and danger make people ill.” - Fair Society Healthy Lives The Marmot Review: Strategic Review of Health Inequalities in England Post-2010 24
