The Labor Force in Economic Development: a Comparison of International Census Data, [John Dana Durand] -- This book explores growth and structural change in the labor force that accompany economic development. It reports on labor force characteristics in one hundred countries around the world, a project. Explanatory variables used are labor force by year age groups, such as the age group of , labeled as 20L. For the purposes of assessing the demographic structure, age groups are compared in relative size or in proportion. All labor force over 60 is grouped in one group as L60+.

      Their young people enter the labor force at an earlier age, and their men continue working to more advanced ages, but this prolongation of the years of eco nomic activity is not enough to compensate for the heavy load of dependency inherent in the youthful age structure of the population.   The working-age population in a region consists of those in a range of ages, typically or , considered able and likely to work.

        Labor Force Statistics The Census Bureau's labor force statistics provide information about employment status, employment dynamics, and work experience (usual hours worked, and the number of weeks worked in the last year).   In developed and developing countries, a decreasing proportion of workers is involved in the primary sector. Only about % of the U.S. labor force was engaged in primary sector activity as of   This is a dramatic decrease from when roughly half of the population worked in the agriculture and mining industries.  .

Labor force age composition and the age-earnings profile in developing countries by Chung-cheng Lin Download PDF EPUB FB2

The procedure for estimating the age composition effect assumes that the workforce has a distribution given by {ϑ 1,t, ϑ n,t}, where ϑ i,t is the share of the labor force, employment, or population in age group i and time period t.

We assume that productivity is a separable function of the share of workers in each age group and of other. Labor force age composition and the age-earnings profile in developing countries.

Size and composition of the population 52 Labour force participation of men and women 55 of labour force surveys as a major drawback in the production of labour force statistics in many countries. As a result, the data collected are not properly or fully analysed, even sometimes not analysed at all.

Profile of working poor by age. the age structure of the labour force.5 During the decade from tothe mean age of the labour force increased from to years.

The proportion of younger adults (aged ) fell from around one third to just one quarter; the plus age group increased by around three percentage.

As the age distribution of the labor force changes, the racial and ethnic composition of the labor force is likely to become increasingly diverse. The committee projects an average annual growth rate of percent and percent for the Hispanic and Asian components of the labor force.

While confirming both effects for the former, it finds little evidence for either in developing countries. In particular,the critical category corresponding to manufacturing worker, operators and assemblers has increased in absolute terms and as a share of the labor force.

There is considerably more variation across developing countries in labor force participation by women than by men. This variation is driven by a wide variety of economic and social factors, which include economic growth, education, and social norms. Looking at just the 25 and older age group and abstracting from the effect of rising.

Today, fewer Americans age 16 and older are participating in the labor force than at any time sinceaccording to a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Labor force participation rates by age and over time Source: Current Population Surveys, – Projections of Future Labor Force Participation We project that labor force participation among those age 15 and older will decrease across the United States, from 63 percent in to 58 percent inbased on recent participation rates.

The labor force participation rate of married women first declines and then rises as countries develop. Its þ-shape is revealed both across the process of economic development and through the.

In rich countries there has been a steeper increase in the age of women in the labor force, partly because participation among younger women has actually gone down. The next chart shows this: most rich countries are above the diagonal line, which means that female labor force participation rates among younger women declined in the period Based on a world-wide compilation of labor force and population statistics of censuses taken duringit presents previously inaccessible data on sex and age patterns of participation in economic activities, the size of the labor force in proportion to population, and changes in these areas associated with economic development.

This article uses detailed industry and household data to understand why Morocco's labor market performed poorly in The data indicate that marked structural changes and weak demand in the product market were responsible.

This article makes two. It is a single index that summarizes the age distribution of a population. Currently, the median age ranges from a low of about 15 in Niger and Uganda to 40 or more in several European countries and Japan.

See the entry for "Age structure" for the importance of a young versus an older age structure and, by implication, a low versus a high.

NOTE: According to the World Development Report (World Bank,Oxford University Press), China’s labor force will expand percent per year from to Thus, based on the total labor force estimates in the upper panel, approximately million people will enter China’s labor force in   This paper investigates this U-shaped service-industry employment ratio from the view of the labor force age structure.

In Fig. 1, the dashed line tracks China's labor force age structure that is defined as the share of people aged 35 and above in the total labor evolved closely with the U-shaped trajectory of the service-industry employment ratio which is represented by the solid. changing age structure for economic growth in developing countries.
