Older workers statistical information booklet

An annual publication providing statistical information on the labour market position of people aged 50 and over up to June 2013.

We no longer publish the ‘Older workers statistical information booklet’. We published the last edition in December 2013.

You can find detailed statistics and research about older workers in the Fuller Working Lives evidence review.

The Office for National Statistics publish regular statistics about the UK labour market, including age breakdowns. They have also published more detailed statistics on the participation rates of older people in the labour market in 2014.
