Will the Jobs of the Future Support an Older Workforce?

30 mars 2022
  • Retirement ages in the United States have been rising for decades but the continuation of this trend depends on employers in the future looking to fill jobs that older workers can do. This study considers whether the occupations that are projected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to grow faster by 2030 are those that are suitable for older workers.

  • As governments try to contain rising expenditure on retirement pensions by increasing eligibility ages, there are concerns that such reforms disproportionately affect poorer households. Using detailed longitudinal data, I examine this trade-off in the context of an Australian reform that increased women’s pension-eligibility age from 60 to 65.

Role of labor demand in the labor market effects of a pension reform

14 mars 2022
  • This paper shows that labor demand plays an important role in the labor market reactions to a pension reform in Germany. Employers with a high share of older worker inflow compared with their younger worker inflow, employers in sectors with few investments in research and development, and employers in sectors with a high share of collective bargaining agreements allow their employees to stay employed longer after the reform.

Employment trends at older ages: policy impact or secular change?

26 januar 2022
  • Observed increases in retirement age are generally attributed to policies to extend working lives (PEW). In a quasi-experimental design we examine to what extent  increases in employment of older workers can be attributed to secular changes in individual characteristics as opposed to PEW. We compare two countries: one with clear PEW (the Netherlands) and one without PEW (Norway).
