Seniors in major metropolitan areas, especially in big Northeastern cities and around Washington, D.C., are more likely to continue working past 65 than those in other areas around the country, according to an analysis of Census data by The Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

Older workers can be a boon to regional economies, increasing tax revenues, stimulating growth with more consumer spending and providing additional talent and expertise at a time of low unemployment, says Paul Irving, chairman of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging.
