[en] The first goal of this paper is to analyze recent socio-economic characteristics
of old-age people in Peru, with emphasis on poverty and social exclusion. For
this, we use the National Household survey (ENAHO) of year 2011 and find
that the majority of the extreme poor elderly are living in the rural area.
Furthermore, only 1% of the elderly living in extreme poverty receives a
pension benefit and a vast majority of them live in one or two-person
households, which intensify their vulnerability. The second goal is to review
the most important social and economic policies towards old-age in Peru. And
finally, we review the literature and policies for the elderly implemented in
other countries with the aim to describe their most relevant impacts. Overall,
our document might be a useful input to think and propose new policies
towards old-age people in Peru based on evidences.
