Policy makers in Europe have accordingly identified an increasing potential for this group to participate in different forms of paid and unpaid activities. In order to systematize European elderly’s productive activities, the article proceeds in two steps: First, it reviews previous research on country differences in European elderly’s participation in employment, informal care for elderly relatives and volunteering in clubs and associations. Based on data from the European Social Survey (ESS), in a second step we assess the analytical potential of different welfare state typologies, using linear regression models. Our analyses measure to what extent the typologies, which were developed for the general population, are suitable for explaining country differences in the elderly’s participation in paid and unpaid productive activities. We conclude that the north-south gradient, which we observe for all three types of productive ageing activities of elderly Europeans is mainly related to the role which welfare states attribute to the family. Welfare states with a high degree of de-familialisation fare best in encouraging their elderly men and women to participate in all types of paid and unpaid productive activities.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Trommer, Kathrin</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/39039"/> <dc:contributor>Strauss, Susanne</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Strauss, Susanne</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-05-29T08:42:22Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Productive Ageing Regimes in Europe : Welfare State Typologies Explaining Elderly Europeans’ Participation in Paid and Unpaid Work</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <dc:contributor>Trommer, Kathrin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2018-12</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-05-29T08:42:22Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
