The notion that pensioners are about to become a burden on Australian workers is ridiculed in a research paper.

The report, by Monash centre for population and urban research, says that while the cost of the age pension has grown faster than gross domestic product over the past decade, demographic ageing is not the cause.

"The rising costs have been due to discretionary policy changes," the report says.
