Who Works beyond the "Standard" Retirement Age and Why? A National Vocational Education and Training Research and Evaluation Program Report
Ryan, Chris; Sinning, Mathias
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
With life expectancy increasing, and changes to public policy aimed at encouraging older workers to stay in the workforce, the conditions under which people decide to retire have changed in recent years. This report describes the characteristics of those who continue to work beyond the age of 65. The findings show that two groups of workers, in terms of their educational qualifications, are more likely to remain working--the most and least educated--while labour force participation of those with vocational qualifications declines. Appended are: (1) Definition of variables; (2) Descriptive statistics; and (3) Multiple imputation of wages. (Contains 16 tables, 8 figures and 10 footnotes.)
