Resumen

MARTIN, Unai; DOMINGUEZ-RODRIGUEZ, Antía  y  BACIGALUPE, Amaia. Social inequalities in health in the older population: an insight into the debate on delayed retirement age in Spain from a public health perspective. Gac Sanit [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.1, pp.82-84.  Epub 21-Oct-2019. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2017.10.010.

Objective

To analyse the inequalities in life expectancy in the Spanish population over the age of 65 according to educational level.

Method

Cross sectional study on the Spanish population aged 65 years and over. Life expectancy and healthy life expectancy were calculated combining mortality, health and population data.

Results

People aged 65 and over with a lower educational level had shorter lives, with fewer years of good health and more years of poor health. Women lived longer, but with proportionally more years of poor health.

Discussion

Social inequalities in health must be considered in the current debate on delaying the age of retirement.
