The work of Spanish men. A quantitative analysis based on census data, 1900-1970

  • Alexander Elu Teran

    (Universitat de Barcelona)

Registered author(s):

    This paper presents a historical examination of employment in old age in Spain, in order to characterize this labour segment and identify and analyse its specific problems. One of these problems is the life-cycle deskilling process, already shown for certain national cases. This study explores whether this hypothesis also holds in Spain. The perspective used is essentially quantitative, as our analysis is based on the age-profession tables in Spanish population censuses from 1900 to 1970.
