    Abstract

    This paper provides an analysis of the work participation of people aged 60 and above residing in urban areas in Argentina, from data specially processed from the Encuesta Permanente de Hogares for the third quarter of 2009. With this purpose, emphasis is made on the main occupation among those who work and the last occupation among those who are unemployed. The collection of pension benefits is evaluated, together with the intensity of occupation at different ages in the occupational groups that have a majority of employed senior citizens. The article shows the duality of the profile of employed senior citizens since among men with a very low, low and medium level of education the main occupations were Construction, Direct Marketing, Industrial and Artisan Production, Transportation, Management of Microenterprises, Repair of Consumer Goods, Administrative Management, Planning and Control, Several Social Services and Civil Surveillance and Security. In turn, among women with the same levels of education, the main occupations were Domestic and Non-Domestic Cleaning Services, Direct Marketing, Administrative Management, Planning and Control, Industrial and Artisan Production, Health and Healthcare, Care Giving and Gastronomic Services. On the other side, among those with a higher level of education, the main occupations were Education, Health, Management of Small and Medium Enterprises, Administrative Management and Marketing.
