ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to provide a policy implication by analyzing determinants that affect the subjective and objective economic levels of the elderly. This study used “National Survey of Older Persons” (2014). Multiple regression analysis and interaction analysis were conducted on the effect of gender, age, and education level on subjective and objective economic levels. The results of the analysis are as follows. First, the level of self - perceived economic status of the elderly is very negative. Second, the economic level of the elderly is ‘differentiation’ according to individual group. Third, ‘sustainability’ exists because of the possibility that the gender, age and educational background of the elderly will be maintained and expanded. Finally, through the implications of the above research, the characteristics of the elderly’s economic level are summarized as ‘differentiation’ and ‘sustainability’.
