The Age Structure of Unemployment in Great Britain 1953-1980
As unemployment increases to record levels in the U.K. increasing attention has been devoted to the distribution of unemployment. This has revealed inequality in the incidence of unemployment not only by occupation, region, race and sex but also amongst individuals. Moreover it also becomes apparent that as the total number out of work has increased so has the degree of inequality of its distribution. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the age distribution of the unemployed. A great deal of emphasis has been placed on the phenomenal increase in youth unemployment since the mid-seventies but of considerable significance has been the deterioration in the position of older workers, especially males. The evidence suggests this to be a process that has been going on since the mid-sixties in the U.K.
