ABSTRACT
This paper analyzes the relationship between the amount of overtime work and an employee's age. Data from the 2002 March supplement to the Current Population Survey are used. The CPS asks three (similar) questions regarding the hours worked. After controlling for economic and demographic variables, the data show little variation in the amount of overtime work as an employee ages. Generally, the amount of overtime work peaks in an employee's late forties but does not vary over his or her lifetime by more than a couple of hours. This result implies that a forensic economist can reliably predict that a history of overtime work would, in the absence of an injury, continue in the future.
