Baby Boomers Not Retiring In Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Many Baby Boomers aren't retiring in
Kentucky.

Census data shows older workers are one of the fastest-growing
segments of the state's work force.

University of Louisville demographer Ron Crouch told the
Courier-Journal the state has a growing older work force and a
decline among younger workers.

U.S. Census Bureau statistics show 111 of Kentucky's 120
counties had an increase in the percentage of workers over 55 years
of age.

The report covers the period from 2001 to 2004.

Kentucky Education Cabinet labor market analyst Justine Detzel
said companies will be faced with large decreases not only in
personnel, but in experience as older workers eventually retire.
