Are older drivers posing an increasing risk to the public? If they are, what options should policymakers consider to mitigate that risk? This research offers a new perspective on these questions. Using an innovative approach to estimate the extent to which older drivers are on the road and their riskiness compared with drivers of other age groups, the study finds that older drivers (those 65 and older) are slightly (16 percent) likelier than drivers aged 25 to 64 to cause an accident and that they pose much less risk to the public than do drivers aged 18 to 24, who are nearly three times likel

The share of older persons in the U.S. population age 55 and older is projected to increase to 30% by 2025 and continue to grow through 2050. At the same time, more older persons are expected to continue working than in the past and, in doing so, may need employment and training services as they make transitions to different jobs and work arrangements. The U.S. Dept. of Labor has identified one-stop career centers (OS) as a means to link older workers with employers through employment and training services. To address the role of OS in serving older workers, this report examined: the Dept. of

As people age, their physical, visual, & cognitive abilities may decline, making it more difficult for them to drive safely. Older drivers are also more likely to suffer injuries or die in crashes than drivers in other age groups. These safety issues will increase in significance because older adults represent the fastest-growing U.S. population segment. This report examined: (1) what the fed. govżt. has done to promote practices to make roads safer for older drivers & the extent to which states have implemented those practices; (2) the extent to which states assess the fitness of older drive

What role should older workers play in our future work force, when the retirement of the baby boomers, starting about 2010, will make tight labor markets commonplace. This unprecedented demographic shift calls for a fundamental rethinking about the work force of the future. Employer attitudes and policies must change if older workers are to remain in the work force longer. This report recommends a "pro-work" agenda for employers, policymakers, and olders in 6 areas: getting the financial incentives right; replacing stereotypes about older workers; the training imperative; rethinking the org. o
