Dynamics of Self-Employment Among Older Workers, Hardback Book

Dynamics of Self-Employment Among Older Workers Hardback

Edited by Janice Tupper


Baby boomers, who were born between 1946 and 1964, are entering their retirement years.

Since rates of self-employment rise with age, a disproportionate share of the self-employed is composed of middle aged or older workers.

Some of these workers have been self-employed for much or all of their working lives while others have transitioned to self-employment later in their careers, often as a way of moving into retirement.

Future predictions of baby boomers as a key catalyst for small business growth in the next decade and beyond have tended to neglect an important trend.

The self-employment rate among those nearing retirement (defined as individuals aged 55-64) has dropped substantially in the past 20 years.

This book addresses questions about this decline, and discusses the self-employment transitions among the older American workers with career jobs.
