Cox proportional hazards regression
As one can see the gap is much wider for the interaction between position and
time in the House. This is the more substantively significant variable.
The results of this model give further evidence to support the most important
assertion of Theriault, that the predictor of retirement with the most important substantive
effects is a measure of career ceilings. Members with long tenure and relatively low
positions in the House are more likely to be the ones to retire. Theriault’s original
substantive finding is robust to the change in data and model that this paper represents.
The substantive conclusions regarding career ceilings are the same even though many of
the other variables in the model have been operationalized differently. This is further
evidence to support the assertion of Theriault that members do retire when their job is not
fun but only some members find their job not to be fun. However, the fact that variables
that Theriault find to be statistically significant in his work are not significant in this
