Jobs: An AARP Bulletin Poll

This AARP Bulletin survey related to employment issues was conducted among adults ages 45+ who were either employed, retired, or temporarily unemployed. The goals of this research were to determine prevalence of recent job-related actions (within the past 12 months), assess degree of uncertainty about current jobs, and compare these experiences to data collected in 2009.

Survey findings Include:

  • No more than 15 percent of respondents experienced any specific job action during the past year.
  • Younger respondents were more likely to have experienced nearly all job actions relative to older respondents.
  • Compared to 2009, fewer critical negative experiences were reported.
  • Approximately three-quarters of those ages 45+ said that it is not very or not at all likely that their job could be eliminated within the next year.
  • Only six percent of respondents returned to work after retiring in the past year.

The study was conducted for AARP via telephone by SSRS, an independent research company, using its telephone omnibus service. Interviews were conducted from June 27-July 7, 2013, among a nationally representative sample of 1,019 respondents 45 years of age or older, who were employed, retired, or temporarily unemployed.
