The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College (CRR) was established in 1998 as part of the Retirement Research Consortium (RRC). The consortium includes parallel centers at the University of Michigan and the National Bureau of Economic Research. The Center is a non-profit research institute, affiliated with the Carroll School of Management at Boston College. All of the CRR’s research and publications are available to the public on its website. The center sponsors multiple research projects and disseminates the findings, trains new scholars, and provides access to data on retirement. One of the primary reasons for the center is that the number of Americans over age 65 will double between now and 2030. With increasing life expectancy, individuals are spending more time in retirement than ever before.
