    Public perceptions of the population aging "crisis".

    Northcott HC

    CANADIAN PUBLIC POLICY/ANALYSE DE POLITIQUES. 1994 Mar; 20(1):66-77.

    This study examines the extent to which the general public anticipates a future crisis regarding Canada's ability to provide economic support for its aging population and analyses public opinion regarding policy alternatives designed to either increase revenues or reduce expenditures for seniors. Data are from a 1989 survey of 443 adults in Edmonton, Alberta. The results suggest that "there is a widely shared perception that Canada in the future will have difficulty supporting its elderly population. Furthermore, the public appears to be willing to accept increased taxation, is divided on the issue of targeting benefits to lower income seniors, and is opposed to across-the-board cuts in the levels of benefits paid to seniors."
