Abstract

The literature was reviewed for studies in which “older worker” was operationalized using some chronological age as a threshold. An analysis of 105 studies shows little agreement on when a worker becomes an older worker. A variety of methods, mostly arbitrary, were used in setting threshold age. Implications are discussed. © 1987, Sage Publications. All rights reserved.
