Abstract

This project examines relationships between men’s and women’s life-course experiences and their employment trajectories in the ages of 50 to 70. The analysis used two sources of longitudinal data: the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) and the ONS Longitudinal Study (LS) to examine the effects on employment after 50 of both earlier lifecourse events (such as educational achievement, labour market entry and family formation) and later life determinants (such as health and disability, individual pension savings and pension entitlements, and job characteristics such as physical strains and job autonomy). The project investigates both the direct effects of early lifecourse factors on later life employment, and the indirect effects which occur because early life factors influence later events.
