Data Element

Information from the submission form

Retirement Date
Description
Retirement Date is a self-reported date (at least year) that a person considers themselves to have ‘retired’. A person can have more than one Retirement Date. A person can be both employed and retired, so these data are independent of one another.

Comment

Unified Comment from CDC

  • CSTE supports inclusion of this measure into USCDI v3: Very supportive of including work information in USCDI – important for assessing increased risk of conditions related to I/O
    • Specific job title and workplace address are also critical for outbreak investigation

Unified Comment from CDC

SDOH: Retirement can be associated with benefits that reduce health disparities, e.g., access to health insurance prior to Medicare eligibility, income.

Recommendations for Updated Submission

We received a slightly differing data element description and believe it should be updated in this submission:    A self-reported date that a person considers themselves to have ‘retired’. A person can have more than one retirement date. Retirement is independent of Employment Status.
