The Social Construction of Retirement among Professionals 50-60 Years Old.
Karp, David A.
Gerontologist, v29 n6 p750-60 Dec 1989
Examined retirement attitudes of 50- to 60-year-old professional men and women (N=72). Looked at work contingencies influencing whether respondents anticipated retirement positively. Found that respondents who had unfinished work agendas, reported high job satisfaction, perceived retirement as financially unfeasible, and retained their health were least likely to anticipate retirement favorably.
