UM22-13: The Dynamic Effects of Health on the Employment of Older Workers: Impacts by Gender, Education and Race

Researchers

Abstract

We will estimate the long run impacts of health on employment by gender, education, and race in the United States and United Kingdom. Our structural framework allows us to disentangle employment drivers such as preferences, productivity, and benefit eligibility. We will study the types of jobs people do and the health demands of those jobs, allowing us to better understand why the impact of health differs across groups.
