Clean, tight, unmarked; corner turned on p.19; otherwise absolute minimal wear; Using statistical and demographic concepts, Costa explains trends in retirement data. Her examination sheds light on such topics as rising incomes and retirement, work and disease, the job prospects of older workers, living arrangements of the elderly, the development of a retirement lifestyle, and pensions and politics. She concludes with a look into the future and further evolution of retirement, addressing perhaps the most vexing problem of retirement policy, the impact of the aging Baby Boom generation on the Social Security System.
