Here are some of the latest reports, surveys, and studies related to retirement, including research into age discrimination against older job seekers, and how computerization since the '80s has affected older workers.

Older workers have fared like all other workers because, overall, they were just as likely to be in the routine jobs that were disrupted. Read more about this proposed study which will explore whether, over the next two decades, whether increasingly capable computers might favor jobs that do rely on skills that vary by age.
