by Schofield, Deborah | National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre | Callander, Emily | Shrestha, Rupendra | Kelly, Simon.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2013 Includes appendicesSummary: Using longitudinal data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) project, in this study Deborah Schofield of University of Sydney and colleagues quantify the household wealth of people who work from their early 60s through to 65 and beyond, and compare it those who do not work through these ages. The wealth of people who remain employed is significantly greater than that of those not employed, even after adjusting for different education, gender and family type. The detrimental impact on savings of not working beyond their early 60s is shown in the small decline in financial assets of such people.Availability: (1)

Age differences in job loss, job search, and reemployment /

by Johnson, Richard | Urban Institute | Mommaerts, Corina.

Publisher: Washington, DC Urban Institute 2011Description: PDF.Other title: The program on retirement policy. Discussion paper ; no. 11-01.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011 Bibliography pp. 29-33 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Working longer is often hailed as the best way to increase retirement incomes, yet this strategy depends crucially on seniors' ability to find work and hold on to their jobs. This study examines how the incidence and consequences of job displacement vary by age. Results show that older workers are less likely than younger workers to lose their jobs, but only because they generally have spent more time with their employers. When older workers lose their jobs, it takes them longer than their younger counterparts to become reemployed, and when they do find work they generally experience sharp wage declines.Availability: (1)

Age discrimination : exposing the hidden barrier for mature age workers /

by SaratChandran, Priya | Australian Human Rights Commission | O'Connell, Karen | Rosenman, Elena.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Australian Human Rights Commission 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 21-23Summary: The purpose of this paper is to look at and raise awareness and understanding of ageism and unlawful age discrimination against mature age workers within the workplace. This form of discrimination appears to sit quietly, it can go unnoticed and seems accepted. This paper aims to expose it. The paper explains what age discrimination and ageism are and what they can look like in Australian workplaces. It also outlines the often devastating impacts this form of discrimination can have on the lives of individuals, our communities and our nation as a whole. The paper explains how mechanisms, such as the Age Discrimination Act, can help to protect us from unlawful age discrimination and, more broadly, assist in tackling ageism within our community.Availability: (1)

Age discrimination in the labour market : experiences and perceptions of mature age Australians /

by Adair, Tim | National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre | Temple, Jeromey | Ortega, Lea | Williams, Ruth.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2013 Includes bibliographic references pp. 21-22 and appendicesSummary: There are numerous social and economic benefits to mature age people remaining in employment for as long as they are willing to continue working. One persistent barrier to mature age employment is age discrimination. Despite the skills, experience and mentoring abilities that mature age people can bring to workplaces, age discrimination unfortunately remains an obstacle to many senior Australians being able to work. Age discrimination can be direct - such as a person being told they are too old for a job - or can present in far more subtle ways.Availability: (1)

Ageing and skills : a review and analysis of skill gain and skill loss over the lifespan and over time /

by Desjardins, Richard | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development | Warnke, Arne Jonas.

Publisher: OECD Publishing 2012Description: PDF.Other title: OECD education working paper ; no. 72.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: EDU/WKP(2012)9 27-Mar-2012 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: The relationship between ageing and skills is becoming an important policy issue, not least in the context of population ageing. Data from the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) will potentially add considerably to the understanding of the relationship between ageing and foundation skills. In particular, the fact that data from the 1994-1998 International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) and the 2003-2007 Adult Literacy and Lifeskills Survey (ALL) will be linked with PIAAC offers a unique opportunity to examine trends over time at the cohort level for a wide range of countries. Specifically, repeated measures will enable an analysis of whether there is skill gain and skill loss over the lifespan of cohorts and overtime between cohorts. This is especially important because age-skill profiles observed on the basis of a single cross-section are difficult to interpret. With this as a backdrop, this paper has sought to provide an overview of what is known about age-skill profiles and to conduct an analysis that demonstrates how trend data based on repeated cross-sectional observations of direct measures of skill at the cohort level can be used to estimate skill gain and skill loss over the lifespan and over time.Availability: (1)

Ageing and the barriers to labour force participation in Australia /

by Adair, Tim | National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre | Hosseini-Chavoshi, Meimanat.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2011 Bibliography pp. 35-38 Appendix p. 39Summary: The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) projects that, between 2011 and 2020, the number of persons aged 50 and over in Australia will increase by more than 22 per cent. By 2050, the number aged 50 and over will have increased by over 80 per cent, or by 6.4 million. In comparison, the number of persons aged 18 to 49 is projected to grow by just over 35 per cent by 2050. This important demographic change, ceteris paribus, implies a greater role for mature age Australians both economically and in society more generally.Availability: (1)
