Overview


Until now, we have known relatively little about the relationships between older people's incomes and their work history patterns, and how these are mediated by other factors such as gender, partnerships, ill-health and disability. This report draws on data from the British Household Panel Survey to fill these gaps.Questions asked include:Have the trends in employment and income changed during the 1990s?To what extent are employment and income for individuals in their 50s similar to those for individuals of pension age?How does income change in the years around retirement?What is the relationship between an individual's income in old age and his or her employment history during his or her working life?·[vbTab]Transitions after 50 seriesPeople are living longer, yet increasingly are leaving working life well before the state retirement age. The Joseph Rowntree Fountain programme, Transitions after 50, explores people's experiences, decisions and constraints as they pass from active labour market participation in their middle years towards a new identity in later life. Reports in this series look in particular at issues about work, income and activities beyond work during this period of transition.For other titles in this series, please follow the series link from the main catalogue page.
