In this project, we employ data from the Chinese population censuses of 1982, 1990, and 2000 to examine reform-era changes in the patterns of male and female labor force participation and in the distribution of men???s and women???s occupational attainment. Very marked patterns of change in labor force participation emerge when we disaggregate the data by age cohort, marital status, sex, and rural/urban location. Women have decreased their labor force participation more than men, and urban women much more than rural women. Single young people in urban areas have decreased their labor force participation to stay in school to a much greater extent than single young people in rural areas. The urban elderly have decreased their rates of labor force participation while the rural elderly have increased theirs. We also find evidence of the feminization of agriculture.
If the labor force participation rate had not dropped due to the weak labor market, and instead the people who made up the cyclical decline in the labor force participation rate were in the labor force and counted as unemployed, the unemployment rate would now be significantly higher. The last two columns of the table explore the possible impact of the cyclical decline in the labor force participation rate since the start of the Great Recession on the unemployment rate. These columns provide the unemployment rate in 2011, along with what the unemployment rate would have been if the workers who made up the difference between the 2011 labor force participation rate and its long-term trend-i.e., the workers who dropped out of, or never entered, the labor force because of weak job prospects-had instead been in the labor force and counted as unemployed. For all groups except men age 55 and older, the unemployment rate in 2011 would have been higher. For prime-age men, it would have been nearly 10 ...
Downloadable! We build a general equilibrium model with endogenous saving, labor force participation, work hours and social security benefit claiming, in which overlapping generations of individuals face income, survival and health expenditure risks in incomplete markets. We use the model to study the impact of three Social Security reforms; reduction in benefits and payroll taxes, increase in the early retirement age from 62 to 64 and increase in the normal retirement age from 66 to 68. We show that a reform can have a significant effect on the budget of the Social Security through the changes in savings as well as the benefit claiming and labor force participation. When the projected aging of the population is taken into account, the case for a reform that encourages labor force participation of the elderly becomes stronger.
Labor Force Participation Rate in Portugal is expected to be 58.10 percent by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate Labor Force Participation Rate in Portugal to stand at 58.00 in 12 months time. In the long-term, the Portugal Labor Force Participation Rate is projected to trend around 57.80 percent in 2020, according to our econometric models.
Study Purpose: This project examined the impact of intimate partner violence on labor force participation of current and former welfare recipients and determined whether change in welfare status affected violence levels. This study sought to identify the incidence of partner violence among recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) over a three-year period, to examine the impact of partner violence on womens labor force participation over time, and to explore the short and longer-term consequences of victimization on the womens employment and economic well-being, as well as their physical and mental health. Specifically, the goals were to: (1) assess the impact of violence on employment over time while controlling for other factors (such as ethnicity, physical and mental health, household composition, childcare, and transportation) that may also be related to violence and employment, and (2) examine whether change in womens self-sufficiency (e.g., through loss of welfare ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - How co-morbidities magnify the effect of arthritis on labour force participation and economic status: A costs of illness study in Australia. AU - Schofield, Deborah J.. AU - Callander, Emily J.. AU - Shrestha, Rupendra N.. AU - Passey, Megan E.. AU - Percival, Richard. AU - Kelly, Simon. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - Few studies have assessed the impact of co-morbid conditions amongst patients with arthritis. This study will quantify the impact co-morbid health conditions have on the labour force status and economic circumstances of people with arthritis. This study uses a microsimulation model, HealthWealthMOD, to quantify the impact of co-morbidities on the labour force participation and economic circumstances of 45- to 64-year-old Australians with arthritis. The results show that the probability of being out of the labour force increases with increasing number of co-morbidities. However, there was no statistically significant difference in the amount of weekly private income ...

TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT Temporary employment is work that is not a permanent job. Rather, temporary employment allows an individual to work for shorter terms in a variety of jobs utilizing many skills. The scope of temporary employment is wide-ranging. In many cases, temporary employment can lead to permanent positions. Temporary employment is an expanding type of work in the twenty-first century. As America joins the global marketplace in seeking qualified employees for its work force, temporary employment is playing a major part in the process.

The labor force participation rate increased from 62.7 percent to 62.9 percent in January as the number of people not in the labor force declined from 92,898,000 in December to 92,544,000 in January, and the unemployment rate ticked up
This paper illustrates the demographers perspective of labor force analysis and shows how recent methodological developments in demography, in particular in multiregional demography, can fruitfully be applied to manpower studies. First, curves of age-specific labor force participation rates are investigated and it is shown how their universal features enable one to describe the schedules by a limited number of parameters. Next, an increment-decrement table of working life is developed and compared with the conventional technique of working life table construction. Finally, an improved labor force projection model is presented.. ...
The states labor force participation rates, which describe what proportion of Marylanders over the age of 16 are either employed or looking for work, are also drastically down compared to pre-pandemic numbers, both for Maryland and across the nation. Only 65.1% of Maryland adults are participating in the labor force, a decline of 3.8% since the start of the pandemic.. Although Maryland still has a higher labor force participation rate than the country at large does, at 61.5%, the states rate declined more sharply than the U.S.s, which dipped only 1.1%. According to the report, the labor force participation rate is lower than it has been since the 1970s, when women were entering the labor force in large numbers.. Labor force participation rates for women have been particularly hard hit as many working women have chosen to stay with school-age children or grandchildren who are now attending classes online from home, the report explained. This is a trend that is likely to have long-term ...
I recap how to interpret this chart. The gap between the two lines can be interpreted to represent the strength and confidence in the economy at a point in time. The greater the distance in the gap between the two lines, the stronger the economy as more people are confident of participating in the labour market and less people are unemployed. When the lines move together in an upward trajectory, labour force participation and unemployment are both increasing, indicating that there is confidence in gaining employment but there is a short time lapse between entering the labour market and securing employment (Point A). This pattern tends to be a very short lived one as employment catches up to supply. When the lines move in different directions and the labour force participation rate is increasing and unemployment decreasing (Point B) it indicates that the supply of labour (new entrants to the labour market) can not keep up with the demand for labour. Conversely, when the labour force participation ...
paratively well educated, was not available for much of the day because he was away at work.. A Half-Century of Change: Mothers Work, Mother-Only Families, and Poverty. Childrens lives continued to change dramatically during the past 50 years with regard to where and with whom they spent their time and the economic resources available in their families. Increases in mothers labor force participation have removed many mothers from the home for much of the day, leaving children in the care of persons other than their parents. Enormous increases in one-parent fam- ilies maintained by mothers have removed fathers from the homes of many children. Sharp poverty de- clines followed by substantial poverty increases have dramatically changed the economic resources avail- able in many families to provide for the care, nurtur- ing, and development of children..

Although 2017 also brought a reduction in the payroll employment of retail establishments, it likely reflects an ongoing shift in American shopping patterns, as buyers substitute online purchases for brick-and-mortar experiences. There have also been reductions in Federal Government employment, which reflects the Administrations efforts to right-size the footprint of the Federal Governments operations and save taxpayer dollars.. In 2018, the first wave of tax reform job and wage gains should produce continued tightness in the labor market and thus bigger take-home checks for workers, as well as increased labor force participation as more workers get off the sidelines and re-enter the working world. The labor force participation rate for Americas prime-aged workers (aged 25 to 54) was 81.7 percent in 2017 and remains 1.3 percentage points below the rate in 2007-the last year before the Great Recession. Higher wage growth should induce some of these additional labor force non-participants to ...
This study of 438 women aged 18-65 in the Detroit metropolitan area in 1974 provides information on their participation in the labor force. Data are provided on the job histories of respondents, up to 14 previous occupations in order to assess the nature of work, length of stay on the job, and the status of public or private employment. Respondents were asked questions about the various jobs they had held, such as their feelings toward their jobs, their reasons for working, job titles held, membership in labor unions, health conditions that might have affected their work, reasons for leaving their jobs, and the geographic location of their workplace, as well as their feelings of job security and job satisfaction. Other questions probed respondents feelings about equal job opportunities for men and women, equal privileges for women and men, the removal of the glass ceiling for women in Americas corporate and political life, the implications for the marriage if a wife earned more than her ...
We examine trends in self-employment among white and black men from 1910 to 1990 using Census and CPS microdata. Self-employment rates fell over most of the century and then started to rise after 1970. For white men, we find that the decline was due to declining rates within industries, but was counterbalanced somewhat by a shift in employment towards high self-employment industries. Recently, the increase in self-employment was caused by an end to the within industry decline and the continuing shift in employment towards high self-employment industries. We find that the trends in self-employment average returns do not easily explain the decline in self-employment from 1950 to 1970, nor the increase from 1970 to 1990. We also find that changes in tax rates, social security benefits, and immigration patterns do not explain the recent upturn in self-employment. For black men, we find that the self-employment rate remained at a level of roughly one-third the white rate from 1910 to 1990. The large ...
of 62.7 percent in January 2018.. 6. While labor force participation has declined overall, the decline has been faster among blacks. For instance, declines in prime-age (25-54) labor force participation rates have been the steepest for black men, who report participation rates nearly 10percent lower than their white peers.. 7. This gap could, in part, be driven by differences in health outcomes that result in early exit from the labor force, as black workers are more likely than white non-Hispanics to cite poor health as a factor in the decision about when to retire.. 8. Blacks make up roughly 12 percent of the American workforce. The community makes up an even larger share of employment in ...
Ever since Goldin (1995) proposed the idea that there is a U-shaped female labor force participation rate function in economic development, empirical research is stunned by the question why the countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are characterized by such low rates of female labor force participation. This gap in labor economics research is all the more perplexing since gender equality, particularly in education and employment, significantly contributes to economic growth. The research strategy of this paper is within a relatively new tradition in labor market research, initiated by Besamusca et al. (2015), which does not exclude the religious factor and what the authors call gender ideology. Our analysis of the gender ideology of Islamism and gender values is based on an empirical analysis of World Values Survey data. In recent economic theory, Carvalho (2013) maintained that Muslim veiling is a strategy for integration, enabling women to take up outside economic ...
Sociologists argue that social structure affects personality by its decisive influence on proximate conditions of life (Kohn, 1990). Macro-structural elements, such as principles of political organization, national economic and social policies, employment and welfare policies, have a great impact on material and social resources and choices available to individuals. These available resources and choices form the basis in which individual intelligence develops and personal judgment forms. In addition, national norms and values also shape individual normative contexts by interpersonal connection and communication. Thus, different macro structures and ideologies might result in different gender attitudes by influencing different personal experiences and values.. In the post-communist era in Eastern European countries, one prominent feature in gender norms is to allow women to return to the private sphere. This is a response to the state enforcement in the socialist era, in which women were ...
The results from this reports analysis indicate a strong link between two years of free, high-quality preschool and significantly higher rates of maternal labor force participation and employment, at least among women with young children. These findings have implications for policymakers who may be weighing the costs and benefits of investing in universal, high-quality preschool. Among these are the short-term and long-term benefits to young families, the economic impact of greater labor force participation, the potential challenges that such an expansion may present for infant and toddler child care, and the risk of spurring urban gentrification as family-friendly policies induce some higher-income families to move into or stay within the city.. The District of Columbias universal, full-day preschool program provides excellent economic benefits to the citys young families. As a two-generation policy, it offers high-quality early education for children while reducing the strain that child ...
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of April 2014, the labor force participation rate was 62.8%.[6] The overall labor force participation rate is expected to decline for the remainder of the decade, projected to fall to 62.5% in 2020.[7] By the year 2020, the subpopulation of older adults in the United States is expected to reach 97.8 million people, comprising 28.7% percent of the entire U.S. population, a rise from the 24.7% in 2010.[7] This increase in proportion of older adults can be attributed to the entire Baby Boomer cohort joining the older adult population (ages 55+) by 2020. It is projected that by 2020, the proportion of the U.S. labor force that is composed of older adults will be 25.2%.[2][7] This continues a trend in increasing rates of older adults remaining in the workforce, as the rates were 13.1% in 2000 and 19.5% in 2010.[7] A complementary trend that follows this is the increasing median age of the U.S. workforce. By 2020, the workforce is expected to have a ...
Informal care is today the form of support most commonly used by those who need other people in order to carry out certain activities that are considered basic (eating, dressing, taking a shower, etc.), in Spain and in most other countries in the region. The possible labour opportunity costs incurred by these informal carers, the vast majority of whom are middle-aged women, have not as yet been properly quantified in Spain. It is, however, crucially important to know these quantities at a time when public authorities appear to be determined to extend the coverage offered up to now as regards long-term care. In this context, we use the Spanish subsample of the European Community Household Panel (1994- 2001) to estimate a dynamic ordered probit and so attempt to examine the effects of various types of informal care on labour behaviour. The results obtained indicate the existence of labour opportunity costs for those women who live with the dependent person they care for, but not for those who care ...
Explanations for these trends tend to focus either on the demand for workers or the supply of labor. Trade and technology have reduced the demand for certain types of work, particularly less-skilled labor in fields like manufacturing. Of the two, most economists believe that automation has played the larger role. Manufacturings share of GDP has remained relatively stable but, thanks in part to productivity improvements, the sector now employs only two-thirds as many people as it did 30 years ago. Technological change has widened the wage gap between skill levels. While a man with a high school degree earned about three-quarters of the wages of his college-educated counterpart in 1980, he now earns about half as much. At the same time that technology has made certain jobs obsolete, new jobs are being created in other areas (both high-wage managerial and technical jobs and low-wage service sector jobs), but these new jobs often require different skills or pay lower wages.. On the supply side of ...
We examine the roles of sample initial conditions and unobserved individual effects in consistent estimation of the dynamic binary response panel data model. Different specifications of the model are estimated using female welfare and labor force participation data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation. These include alternative random effects (RE) models, in which the conditional distributions of both the unobserved heterogeneity and the initial conditions are specified, and fixed effects (FE) conditional logit models that make no assumptions on either distribution. There are several findings. First, the hypothesis that the sample initial conditions are exogenous is rejected by both samples. Misspecification of the initial conditions results in drastically overstated estimates of the state dependence and understated estimates of the short- and long-run effects of children on labor force participation. The FE conditional logit estimates are similar to the estimates from the RE ...
The age-specific participation rates for both men and women are projected to increase or stabilise in all age groups to 2054-55 (Chart D.1). While total labour force participation is projected to decline as the population ages, based on recent trends, some age groups are expected to experience rising labour force participation rates.

In a recent study published by the International Journal of Manpower SPPs Head Martin Kahanec and recent SPP doctoral graduate Magdalena Ulceluse (now at the University of Groningen) show how the effect of employment protection legislation (EPL) on self-employment differs between natives and immigrants.. Covering 18 European countries over the period 1995-2013 and using OECD indicators on the strictness of that govern regular and temporary employment, they find a positive effect of EPL of regular employment on native self-employment and an indication of a negative effect on immigrant self-employment. In contrast, they provide evidence that the effect of EPL pertaining to temporary employment has a positive effect on immigrant self-employment, but does not affect natives. These findings could mean that stricter EPL reduces employers flexibility in adjusting to economic cycles and forces them to contract out work instead, an effect particularly affecting natives when it comes to regular ...
2) For the purpose of this paragraph the term wages includes remuneration paid to an employee for services covered by an agreement entered into under section 218 of the Act, or an agreement entered into under section 3121(l) of the Code, which would be wages under section 209 of Act if the services were considered employment under section 210(a) of the Act. (c)Minimum net earnings from self employment. (1) Self-employment income does not include your net earnings from self-employment when the amount of those earnings for the taxable year is less than $400. If you have only $300 of net earnings from self-employment for the taxable year you would not have any self-employment income. (Special rules apply if you are paid $100 or more and work for a church or church-controlled organization that has exempted its employees (see ยง 404.1068(f)).) (2) If you have net earnings from self-employment of $400 or more for the taxable year you may have less than $400 of creditable self-employment income. This ...

EEOC is responsible for enforcing the anti-discrimination laws in the federal sector. EEOC conducts thousands of hearings every year for federal employees and applicants who have filed discrimination complaints. In addition, when a federal agency issues a final decision on a complaint of discrimination, the complainant can appeal that decision to the EEOC.. The EEOC also ensures that the federal departments and agencies maintain programs of equal employment opportunity required under Title VII and the Rehabilitation Act. Moreover, under Executive Order 12067, the EEOC provides leadership and coordination to all federal departments and agencies programs enforcing statutes, executive orders, regulations, and policies which require equal employment opportunity or which have equal employment opportunity implications. ...

Considering the most recent changes in the pension systems in Europe, this article aims to evaluate whether there is any relationship between the employment rates of older cohorts and the employment and unemployment rates in the youngest cohorts of a productive age. Its key finding is that there is no evidence that would indicate that the lower professional activity of older people is accompanied by higher employment and lower unemployment among young people. On the contrary, the study reveals that the higher the labour force participation among the elderly, the better the situation for young cohorts in the labour market. As demonstrated by the results of our empirical research, factors such as unfavourable demographics and the inefficiency of government policy aiming at stimulating the development of the labour market influence the prospects of young people entering this market.

The nation needs to rethink its outlook and policies on working and retirement, said Ronald Lee, professor of demography and economics at the University of California, Berkeley, and committee co-chair. Although 65 has conventionally been considered a normal retirement age, it is an increasingly obsolete threshold for defining old age and for setting benefits for the elderly. The committee found that there is substantial potential for increased labor force participation at older ages, which would boost national output, slow the draw-down on retirement savings, and allow workers to save longer. The report adds that longer working lives would have little effect on employment opportunities for younger workers, productivity, or innovation ...
What is the current employment rate? Employment Rate in the United States is expected to be 59.00 percent by the end of this quarter, according to Trading
For release 10:00 a.m. (EST) Tuesday, December 8, 2015 USDL-15-2327 Technical information: (202) 691-5700 [email protected] www.bls.gov/emp Media contact: (202) 691-5902 [email protected] EMPLOYMENT PROJECTIONS -- 2014-24 Healthcare occupations and industries are expected to have the fastest employment growth and to add the most jobs between 2014 and 2024, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. With the increase in the proportion of the population in older age groups, more people in the labor force will be entering prime retirement age. As a result, the labor force participation rate is projected to decrease and labor force growth to slow. This slowdown of labor force growth is expected, in turn, to lead to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of 2.2 percent annually over the decade. This economic growth is projected to generate 9.8 million new jobs--a 6.5-percent increase between 2014 and 2024. The projections are predicated on assumptions including a 5.2 percent unemployment rate ...
It might not be obvious why the president of a Federal Reserve Bank would be interested in workforce development - what does it have to do with interest rates and inflation? But workforce development is intimately related to part of the Feds legislative mandate, which is promoting maximum employment. That has proven to be a difficult task in the wake of 2007-09 recession, as Im sure you are all too aware.. The long-term unemployment rate remains at a historical high, and the labor force participation rate is at its lowest rate in decades. So in addition to the large number of unemployed, there are also many people who have dropped out of the labor force altogether. That has led me and other policymakers to ponder a difficult question: Given the limitations of monetary policy, what can be done to improve labor market outcomes in the long run?. At the Richmond Fed, our research suggests that much of what were currently seeing in the labor market reflects structural trends rather than a ...
Over the longer term, the Employment Population Ratio has been fairly flat as the unemployment rate kept dropping. So where is the inconsistency? One measure that explains this disconnect is called the Labor Force Participation Rate. It measures the total US labor force, combining both the employed as well as the unemployed, as a proportion of the total working age population. This measure is showing that the total labor force has been shrinking relative to the corresponding age group. And that explains a good deal of the reduction in the unemployment rate as the number of people officially employed has been measured against an increasingly smaller labor force (with many unemployed simply exiting ...
The unemployment rate in South Korea declined in August, going against the consensus expectation for an increase amidst the countrys struggles with the pandemic. The unemployment rate slipped to 2.8% from 3.3% in July. This is partly attributed to a decline in the labour force participation rate, a sign that there is a decline in the economically active population. Nonetheless, there was also a slight increase in the number of employed persons, as a strong trade performance fuelled hiring. The employment situation is likely to improve with upcoming emergency handouts and an easing of virus curbs.

Low female labor force participation in India has an adverse impact on the socioeconomic advancement of women and overall economic growth. There is reason to believe that, especially in case of rural women, lack of skills training may have a role to play. Government and NGO programs have tried to bridge this gap via provision of targeted skills training. The first-order policy question of interest is, does vocational or entrepreneurial training generate meaningful changes in womens skill sets, employment outcomes, and income? Randomized controlled trials over the past decade have produced evidence on this question, and results have varied considerably by context. One reason why training programs may generate small treatment effects is related to selection into program participation. For example, many programs promote enrollment by providing monetary incentives to participants. This strategy might be inefficient because:. ...
