A Comparative Analysis of Price Indexes for Older Consumers in Three Countries

Abstract:
Within the limits imposed by using existing survey data, Consumer Price Indexes for older consumers are compared to overall indexes in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Despite differences in expenditure patterns for the elderly, the results indicate fairly similar increases over the period of comparison. Differences in coverage and limitations of the comparisons are discussed.

Keywords:
Elderly; senior citizens; pensioner; expenditure pattern; CPI; Consumer Expenditure Survey.
