Retirement in the 1950s: Rebuilding a Longitudinal Database

a PSC Small Fund Research Project

Investigator:   Amy M. Pienta

ICPSR holds the physical and digital materials associated with the Cornell Study of Occupational Retirement. The Cornell Study is a unique and rich, large-scale data source that has never been made publically available to demographers, sociologists, and economists who could apply state-of-the-art research questions and methods to these data. In this project, ICPSR will determine the extent to which the archival holdings are recoverable for public use.

Funding Period: 02/01/2010 to 06/30/2011

Country of Focus: USA
