2. looks to me like more young people are going to college

and graduate school.

I wonder if I was counted as employed when I was working as a TA? Probably not, I was not even paying social security taxes.

To get an idea of the participation rate though there probably should be some percentages.

That is, what is the difference between 1992 and 2012 in terms of
the percentage of the population which was

75+
65-74
55-64
25-54
20-24

as an increasing percentage of the population moves into the 55+ age group where the participation rate has always been lower, then the participation rate of the total is bound to go down.

I look forward to the day 2 years one month and two days away (not that anyone is counting) when I, myself, will no longer have to participate in the labor force. Sing it with me "tale this job and shove it ..."
