Retirement Flows

Alan Gustman () and Thomas L. Steinmeier

No 1069, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: This paper considers labor market flows of older workers among the states of nonretirement, partial retirement and full retirement.Statistics are presented which describe entry, exit and continuation rates for each state by age, duration dependence, and "reverse flows."One important finding which has implications for the structure of utility functions embedded in life cycle retirement models is the relatively high incidence but short duration of partial retirement.These implications are discussed.
