Abstract: According to Ilmarinen (1999) the crucial role in projecting policies aimed at increasing economic activity of older persons is maintaining their work ability, which is influenced by different factors, such as health, competence, norms and attitudes, work environment. The aim of the study is to analyze whether individual characteristics, workplace features, as well as institutional settings and country context influence probability of work intensions in older working age groups. The methods used are- factor analysis, two step cluster analysis, latent class analysis and multilevel logistic regression. Data comes from- the European Working Condition Survey 2005. From this preliminary analysis I conclude that individual factors, workplace features and labour market situation significantly influence work intentions probability in older working age, however there are strong gender differences in this respect in the European Union (EU).
