This topical report explores how decisions about work are affected by caring responsibilities for people aged over 50. It draws together information from a variety of sources - an analysis of trends in employment at the household level over the past twenty years, a survey of employees and those who have recently retired in both a rural and an urban area, and over 30 in-depth interviews with people over 50 - to examine the extent of caring responsibilities and how they affect choices about the timing of retirement or reducing hours of work.The pivot generation should be read by policy makers, employers, academics and organisations with an interest in developing child care and elder care. Transitions after 50 seriesPeople are living longer, yet increasingly are leaving working life well before the state retirement age. The Joseph Rowntree Fountain programme, Transitions after 50, explores people's experiences, decisions and constraints as they pass from active labour market participation in their middle years towards a new identity in later life. Reports in this series look in particular at issues about work, income and activities beyond work during this period of transition.For other titles in this series, please follow the series link from the main catalogue page.
