The uncertainties around a sputtering economy have prompted the nation’s healthcare workforce to delay retirement, a new study shows.

Research by The Conference Board shows that the healthcare industry experienced the largest decline in retirement rates among all workforce sectors in the U.S. economy. In 2009-2010, only 1.55% of full-time workers aged 55-64 retired within 12 months, compared with almost 4% in 2004-2007.
