Abstract: This report describes how older workers fared in 2009. It focuses on age differences in unemployment rates (the share of the workforce that is out of work and looking for employment), labor force participation rates (the share of the population that is employed or unemployed), employment rates (the share of the population that is employed), the duration of unemployment spells, and earnings. Analyses compare 2009 outcomes with those in 2007, when unemployment fell to its lowest level after the 2001 recession. Data come from the Current Population Survey, a monthly survey of about 50,000 households that serves as the basis for the federal government's official unemployment statistics.
