The New Lifecycle of Women's Employment: Disappearing Humps, Sagging Middles, Expanding Tops
---- Acknowledgments ----
We thank the many people who have enabled us to use two exceptional data sets. For the Health and Retirement Study (HRS), we thank the University of Michigan, David Wise and the staff at the NBER, especially Mohan Ramanujan. We gratefully acknowledge the work of researchers at the RAND Corporation of Santa Monica CA for producing a harmonized version, known as the RAND HRS and HRS Family Files. We thank the NBER HRS research assistant team—Natalia Emanuel, Amira Abulafi, Jonathan Roth and Yuezhou (Celena) Huo—who created many of the graphs for this paper. For the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) Gold Standard File, we thank Gary Benedetto and Lori Reeder for their assistance. All SIPP results have been formally reviewed to ensure that no confidential Census Bureau data have been disclosed. We thank Larry Katz and the editors of this journal for providing comments and Claudia Olivetti for ILO data. The views expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the US Census Bureau or the National Bureau of Economic Research.
