Do individuals come back to work

Title: Do individuals come back to work once their health improves?

Supervisor: Pilar García-Gómez

Project Description

It is well known that health and employment are positively related, and that indeed ill health constrains many labor outcomes. The literature has focused on the effects that a health deterioration has on exit from employment of young, but particularly middle-aged and older workers. Evidence on the effects of health on transitions into employment is much thinner. The goal of this project is to examine the importance of health in transitions back to work.
