Age-Earnings Profile

Discipline: Economics

Age-Earnings Profile is a correlation measure in labor economics focusing on the relationship between the age of an employee and her income level.

The general trend in the age-earnings profile is that a person's income increases rapidly after graduation, starts to stabilize after a while, and then starts declining after the age of 40.

Among other things, age-earnings profile is also used to make recommendations about the correct timing of retirement savings.
