Part-Time Employment

This Fact Sheet examines older workers who are more likely to work part time:

  • Part-time employment typically increases with age.
  • Workers ages 65 and older are substantially more likely than those ages 25 to 64 to work part time; however, full-time employment for the oldest age group has been increasing.
  • Women are more likely than men to work part time across age groups, although the differences diminish with increasing age.
  • For workers ages 65 and older, white non-Hispanics are the most likely of all the race/ethnic groups to work part time. Part-time status for younger workers does not appear to differ by race or ethnicity.
