GENDER‐COHORT SUCCESSION AND RETIREMENT AMONG OLDER MEN AND WOMEN, 1951 TO 1984

Published

Journal Article

Long‐term trends in occupational change and retirement policy have influenced the relative labor force participation and retirement patterns of subgroups of the older population. Structural changes in the economy have had a large impact on older men and women, pushing the former out of the labor force while pulling the latter in. Meanwhile, the expansion of pension programs for the aged has generally increased the early retirement of men under age 65. Time‐series analyses of these trends between 1951 and 1984 point to the specific influences of these factors on gender‐cohorts. Copyright © 1988, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
