September 22, 2004

Nearly 31 percent of workers age 25 and over had 10 or more years of tenure with their current employer in January 2004.

[Chart data—TXT]

Thirty-two percent of male wage and salary workers age 25 and over had been with their current employer for 10 years or more in January 2004, compared to 29 percent of women. Since January 1983, when the proportions were 38 percent for men and 25 percent for women, the gap between them has narrowed considerably.

In all age categories below age 60 the percentage of men who had 10 years or more of tenure with their current employer is higher than that of women. In the categories age 60 to 64 and age 65 and over, women are more likely than men to have had 10 or more years of tenure.

These data on employee tenure are from the Current Population Survey. To learn more, see "Employee Tenure in 2004" (PDF) (TXT), news release USDL 04-1829.
