dc.description.abstractThis paper analyzes computer use by older male employees and estimatesthe impact of computer use on their employment status, based onindividual data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP) for theyears 1997 and 2001. In line with previous research on the diffusion of newtechnologies, a strong and negative relationship between the age of workersand computer use is found. In addition, the impact of occupational statusand hourly wage on computer use is significantly positive. However, theestimated impact of computer use on the change in employment statusof older workers becomes insignificant when controlling for individual andfirm-specific characteristics.en_US
