Staying Ahead of the Curve is AARP’s Multicultural Work and Career Study. These studies - performed in 2002, 2007, and 2013 - provide an in-depth look at workers ages 45-74: their reasons for working, perceived job security, differential treatment received because of age, their ideal work scenario, the challenges they face, their plans for retirement, and more. The entire set of 2013 results will be released in late April-early May 2013, but brief snapshots of the data will be available in February and March.
The 2013 survey was fielded in November 2012 and December 2012 with a national sample of 1502 adults ages 45-74 who were working full-time, part-time, self-employed, or looking for work. Oversamples were also collected in order to yield a total of 402 African Americans and 410 Hispanics. For more information, contact Rebecca Perron at 202-434-6324.
