A scientific response to the best-selling The Bell Curve which set off a hailstorm of controversy upon its publication in 1994. Much of the public reaction to the book was polemic and failed to analyse the details of the science and validity of the statistical arguments underlying the book conclusion. Here, at last, social scientists and statisticians reply to The Bell Curve and its conclusions about IQ, genetics and social outcomes.

General linear statistical models were used to study the predictors and the consequences of retirement. The data analyzed were derived from the following longitudinal data sets: the Retirement History Study, the National Longitudinal Surveys, the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, the Duke Work and Retirement Study, the Duke Second Longitudinal Study, the Ohio Longitudinal Study, and the Michigan Study of Auto Workers. Twenty-three major conclusions were reached on the subjects of predictors of retirement, consequences of retirement, determinants of adjustment, reasons for retirement, work after retirement, gender differences, racial differences, and socioeconomic differences. Interpretations of these findings, implications for public policy, and directions for future research are outlined for each topic area. [AgeLine]
