Taux d'emploi des seniors et structure productive
This article deals with the relation between the rate of employment of older workers and the great advances made in technology in the last decades. The analysis of specialization of production allows grasping part of this technological evolution. We suppose a relation between older workers? rate of employment and the specialization of production because the characteristics of the older workers labour supply potentially made them particularly vulnerable to a more technological-intensive specialization. To identify this relation, we compare the French production specialization and the one of five countries of the European Union that performs better in terms of older workers? rate of employment (Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Netherlands and United Kingdom). Using international classification of industries by their technological, knowledge and ICT intensity, we find that the French specialization is relatively less favourable to the older workers? employment in comparison to the 5 benchmark countries. JEL classification: J01, J14, J26, J62, L16.
