A Tale of Two Cities

A Statistical Analysis of Baltimore’s Mature Workers


Overview

    • “Mature workers” are defined as those citizens between the ages of 55 and 74.

    • This data is a compilation of information from: 2006 American Community Survey – US Census Bureau and tabulations from the Center for Labor Market Studies, Northeastern University.

  • Next, data is presented which provides a more focused assessment of a sub-set of Baltimore’s mature workers: those who have utilized one of MOED’s One-Stop Career Centers.

Concluding remarks

Concluding Remarks

  • Overall, Baltimore’s mature workers confront the same set of challenges faced by all city residents (low income levels, limited educational attainment, lack of employment).

  • In general, however, the mature workers who utilize MOED’s services exhibit greater stability in each of these areas.


Concluding remarks1

Concluding Remarks

  • This statistical assessment provides us with a firm foundation for future research into employment issues facing mature workers.

  • Going forward, the Mature Worker Task Force plans on conducting surveys with businesses (including BWIB member firms), and select groups of mature workers.

  • These surveys will investigate the needs of these respective populations, vis-à-vis mature work employment development.
