Age at entry (into employment)  (AGE at entry (into employment))

The study of economic activity1 includes the determination of age at entry2 into employment and of age at withdrawal3 or age at retirement3 (324-7). The period between age at entry and age at retirement is called working life4. Occasionally, the expectation of working life5 of persons of a given sex and age is computed; analogous to the computation of the expectation of life (433-3) this shows the mean length of time for which a cohort (116-2) of persons would continue as members of the labour force.
