The construction workforce, just like the U.S. population overall, is aging. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statics, the average age of construction workers is over 42 years old. Many of them expect to stay on the job longer, influenced by financial pressures as well as by job satisfaction. Because of the importance of older workers to the industry, CPWR has developed a series of resources about them.
Information on specific charts and instructions for dashboard use are included in the information icon located to the right of each dashboard title. To get a full view of the dashboard on a mobile device, zoom out slightly and use landscape mode, which will provide a better navigation experience.
You can download the data as a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is color-coded for each set of charts, and each worksheet’s name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.
The dashboard will be updated annually when new data is available, with the next update scheduled for Fall 2024. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
