Labor-Force Participation: The Population Age 55 and Older
Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI)
EBRI Notes, Vol. 28, No. 6, June 2007
This paper examines recent U.S. Census Bureau data on labor-force participation among Americans age 55 and older. The first section uses annualized data on labor-force participation from the Current Population Survey (available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Web site). However, these data provide only an overall picture, not specific demographic details. In order to examine demographic trends of the U.S. population, the second section uses data from the March Current Population Survey.
The PDF for the above title, published in the June 2007 issue of EBRI Notes, also contains the fulltext of another June 2007 EBRI Notes article abstracted on SSRN: "Tax Expenditures and Employee Benefits: Estimates from the FY 2008 Budget."
