AbstractThe purpose of this research is to determine if certain demographic, health, and financial characteristics discriminate between a group of preretirees who anticipate post-retirement employment and a group of those who do not. The data for this investigation are from a study which included employees of nine western region land grant universities. The data were collected independently in each state by mail questionnaire following the Dillman Total Design Method. Discriminant functions were computed and the results suggest that for this sample of preretirees the demographic, health, and financial characteristics which were examined are not significant predictors of anticipated post-retirement employment. Although the outcome of this study did not present any outstanding significant findings, the results do indicate that there is a need to continue investigating the characteristics of those who expect to be employed during retirement.
