AnnotationWhat happens to ageing men when failing powers make them no longer fully employable on their normal work? The author attempts to reduce the onset of industrial senescence to some kind of statistical pattern. After examining the probable extent of chronic and incapacitating sickness among older workers, he tries to estimate how many men of the same ages, though still in reasonable health, would have to change or moderate their work loads if they are to remain in some sense employable. He considers to what varied degrees of strain ageing men are apparently subjected. Finally, an attempt is made to plot the rates at which men really retire from work, and to distinguish the true reasons for their retirement. (RH).
