The situation of retired farmers

Data of the Swiss Health Survey is used to record the financial and social situation of retired farmers in a quantitative and econometric way. It is shown that the income gap between farmers and non-farmers decreases after retirement. Except that old farmers are more often exposed to children than old non-farmers, no significant social differences between the two groups can be identified.
