This chapter, which models the impact of retirement incentives on micro-data using a 2 percent sample of the Danish population, is organized as follows. Section 3.2 gives an introduction to the policy environment—both the current, as well as the recent, ongoing state policy reforms. It also introduces some quantitative aspects of the retirement landscape in Denmark. Section 3.3 describes the contents and structure of the micro-data analyzed. Section 3.4 provides the earnings histories and projections needed as inputs in the micro-analyses. Section 3.5 describes the construction of the social security incentive measures and some of the complications met in this area. Section 3.6 presents the results from a large number of estimations of the impact of incentive measures described in Section 3.5 on retirement behavior. In Section 3.7, the estimation results are used to simulate the expected outcome in the Danish context from a common set of strategic reforms of retirement policy. Section 3.8 concludes the chapter.
