Do job opportunities decline with age?
AbstractThis paper presents a new form of evidence supporting the hypothesis that job opportunities decline with age. Segregation curves computed from the January 1983 Current Population Survey reveal that newly hired old workers tend to be clustered in a smaller set of industries and occupations than both newly hired young workers and all old workers.
