Recent research suggests the share of workers in contingent work -- broadly defined as contract, temporary, or on-call work -- is on the rise. But no research has focused on the association between contingent work and retirement security, because no single U.S. data source combines information on contingent work and detailed retirement security information for the full population of workers. To get around this issue, this paper analyzes three data sources that together provide an assessment of the extent to which contingent workers are able to prepare for retirement: 1) the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, which follows one group of workers from early career into their late 40s and early 50s; 2) a more age-representative sample from the Survey of Income and Program Participation; and 3) Health and Retirement Study respondents at ages 50-61.
