The Pre-Retirement Years: A Longitudinal Study of Labor Market Experience of Men. Volume Two.
Parnes, Herbert S.; And Others
This longitudinal study examined the characteristics of men 45-59 years of age which appeared to be most important in explaining variations in labor force participation, unemployment experience, and various types of labor mobility. In 1966, interviews were conducted with 5,000 civilian men between 45 and 59 years of age. This report covers the second phase of the 5-year study which described magnitude of patterns of change. Of the 5,030 members interviewed in 1966, fewer than 300 were not reinterviewed in 1967. The largest change which occurred in terms of personal characteristics was the health of the respondents. About one-fifth reported some change between the first two interviews. Not much change was reported in labor and employment status. During the year, net change for whites and Negroes was a 0.7 and 2.4 percent decline in employment. Although men in this age group usually had stable job attachments, job changing during the years was by no means negligible. One in ten worked for a different employer in 1967. Interview schedules, a glossary, and sampling, interviewing, and estimating procedures are appended. A report on the initial interviews of the study is available as ED 026 525 (RIE June 1969). (BC)
