About the presentation

While the literature finding a decrease in food expenditures at retirement suggests households do not adequately save for retirement, subsequent evidence that nutrient intake is unaffected by retirement tempers these concerns. Across multiple methods—pooling cross-sectional datasets spanning more than forty years and using longitudinal data—we find that nutrient intake falls at retirement. Improvements in dietary intake data collection methods, which reduced survey non-response and increased reported dietary intake, can reconcile the differences between our results and previous findings.
