The chart has three lines showing the Vanguard hires rate from January 2013 through March 2024 by age category. All three lines—for earners younger than 26, those aged 26 to 38, and those older than 38—dip at the 2020 onset of the COVID-19-induced recession and then rebound through late 2022. In the final months of the period shown, hiring increased for all three age groups.
