Working Longer: Older Americans’ Attitudes on Work and Retirement
October 2013 | Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research
The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research conducted a national survey of 1,024 adults ages 50 and over. This survey illuminates a slow-moving shift in the American idea of retirement. Retirement is not only coming later in life, but for many it no longer represents a complete exit from the workforce. The study does not highlight LGBT workers in particular but gives an illuminating look at older Americans views on working and retirement.
