Abstract: This paper studies the relation between workers' age and their productivity in work teams. We explore a unique data set that combines data on errors occurring in the production process of a large car manufacturer with detailed information on the personal characteristics of workers responsible for the errors. We do not find evidence that productivity declines with age.
