Another interactive look at changes in U.S. labor force participation
Last week we published an interactive graph showing trends in U.S. labor force participation since 1975, using data from the Current Population Survey. While that graph lets you select which time period you want to look at, we thought it might be informative to be able to pick which age group you want to look at. That’s what the interactive below allows you to do.
Select an age bracket and see trends in the share of U.S. workers who are:
• Employed part-time or full-time
• Officially unemployed
• In-home caregivers
• Students in school
