AnnotationThe enquiry was made to see what information could be obtained about the reasons which lead people to retire or stay on at work after reaching the minimum age for the national insurance retirement pension: 65 for men, and 60 for women. The enquiry covered some 29 000 insured men and women who during the four weeks ending 11 October 1953 were taking their retirement pensions either at the minimum age, or were just reaching that age but were staying on at work. The report records reasons given, and information on matters such as working conditions, pension schemes and family circumstances. It also compares the results with other information such as the recorded incapacity of work owing to sickness, industrial injury, or disease. (RH).
