Comparability of the measured labor force of older women in Japan and the United States



Comparability of the measured labor force of older women in Japan and the United States



Journal of Gerontology 33(3): 422-426



Older women in Japan are more likely to be in the labor force than are women in the United States, according to national Census and survey data. However, differences in measured participation, rather than reflection major differences in labor force behavior or utilization between the two countries, may be due to differences in enumeration procedures. The definition of unpaid family work and the timing of the census are different in Japan and the United States and affect the comparability of the measured level of and changes over time in participation by older women in the labor force.
