This paper updates previous Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) publications that have examined employee tenure data of American workers. The latest data on employee tenure from the January 2006 Supplement to the U.S. Census Bureau's Current Population Survey (CPS) are examined and compared with the trends from previous CPS publications on employee tenure. A key finding from the study shows that for all wage and salary workers in both the private and public sectors age 25 or older, median job tenure was virtually unchanged from 1983 (5.0 years) to 2006 (4.9 years).
