Nearly Five Percent of U.S. Workers Are Age Sixty-Five Plus

A recent CareerBuilder study shows 57 percent of workers age 60 plus said they would look for a new job after retiring from their current company, showing that retirement no longer means the end of one’s career. In fact, an estimated 4.7% of jobs are held by workers who are 65 years of age and over, up from 4% in 2001. That amounts to seven million jobs.

Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI), CareerBuilder’s partner and provider of employment data and economic analysis, looked at U.S. Census Bureau data to break down the 65-and-older segment of the workforce. Their findings on the age 65-plus workforce is summarized in the following EMSI infographic.
