    Interesting. Especially Table 1: The surprise is that the participation rate has increased for 50-65 and 65+, which is not what some analysts had expected. Participation of those 50-65 has increased more for those in the lower-most income quartile, while participation of those 65+ has increased more for those in the upper-most income quartile. Other than that, participation has dropped more for those who are younger and in higher-income households.
