    The Effects of Health and Health Shocks on Hours Worked* We investigate the impact of health on working hours in recognition of the fact that leaving the labour market due to persistently low levels of health stock or due to new health shocks, is only one of the possibilities open to employees. We use the first six waves of the HILDA. Journal of Labor Research, , 31, “The Role of Health Insurance in Labor Supply Decisions of Divorced Females.” Quarterly Review of Economics and Finance, , 50, “The Effect of Health and Poverty on Early Childhood Cognitive Development.” Atlantic Economic Journal, , 38, (with D. Welsch).   Using CPS data, we estimate that between , and million childless adults in the US currently earn less than percent of the poverty line, have employer-provided insurance, and are not eligible for public health ng our labor supply estimates directly to this population, we predict a decline in employment of between.

Health Shocks and Couples’ Labor Supply Decisions Courtney C. Coile NBER Working Paper No. September JEL No. J14, J26 ABSTRACT Unexpected health events such as a heart attack or new cancer diagnosis are very common for workers in their 50s and 60s. These health shocks can result in a significant loss in family income.

These health shocks can result in a significant loss in family income if the worker reduces labor supply, but the family can also protect itself against this loss if the worker's spouse increases labor supply, generating an "added worker effect.".

and endogeneity problems. These studies also find a negative relationship between health shocks and affected people’s labor supply, some with larger magnitude and some with smaller magnitude compared to studies which use self-reported health. The analysis of spousal health shocks on labor supply is more limited in the literature.

Bouncing Back from Health Shocks: Locus of Control, Labor Supply, and Mortality * Policy-makers worldwide are embarking on school programmes aimed at boosting students’ resilience. One facet of resilience is a belief about cause and effect in life, locus of control.

We also find evidence that spousal health shocks affect own labor supply, particularly, for : Kyeongkuk Kim, Sang-Hyop Lee, Timothy J Halliday. Owing to both the projected shortfall in Social Security and an overall anticipated labor shortage, recent policy has focused on ways to alter these labor supply decisions, particularly with regard to affecting retirement behavior and income.

Gustman, Mitchell, and Steinmeier () and Hurd () identify some of the factors that influence. As the labor supply decisions of husbands and wives are likely to be determined jointly and have a dynamic relationship with health and shocks to health and employment, we view these models as purely descriptive but informative of the extent to which joint labor supply decisions may affect the timing of by:   Employment-based health insurance coverage is the most common form of health insurance in the United States: in59 percent of non-elderly individuals and 69 percent of non-elderly workers were covered by employer-provided health insurance [Fronstin ].The issue of health insurance being tied to employment in the US health care system has received Cited by: 2.

The focus of this study is the extreme shock of the death of a spouse. We show that widows, who tend to be secondary earners and face large income losses when their husbands die, increase their labor force participation by more than 11%.

In contrast, widowers, who tend to be primary earners and need to financially support one fewer person when losing.

health and wealth shocks affect retirement decisions. They use data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics to estimate a first-differences model of health and wealth shocks on retirement over the course of the s in the United States.

Their results suggest that acute health shocks are associated with labor. Cai, Mavromaras and Oguzoglu () and Zucchelli et al. (), using the same data as is used in our study, find that health shocks have significant and negative effects on individual labour.

subject to empirical research in Australia and, in particular, neither has the way health shocks interact with these constraints.

The second area addressed in this study is the impact of health shocks on the labour supply decisions of older workers. Cai. Supply shocks have more persistent effects than demand shocks. Demand and supply shocks are equally important in driving business cycle fluctuations of labor market variables.

The authors’ findings for demand shocks are robust to alternative identification schemes involving the response of labor productivity at different Size: KB. Such a model is obviously an appealing candidate for studying the evolution of labor supply and wages following disabling health shocks.

In fact, we show that human capital dynamics may be the primary factor in explaining both observed timing of labor supply responses to disability onset and di erential labor supplies by disabled men across. Labor Supply, Wealth Dynamics, and Marriage Decisions decisions, namely labor supply, household production, savings, and marital decisions, are intercon-nected.

As a consequence, to evaluate the effect of a particular policy on individual decisions and estimate a model of retirement and saving decisions of elderly couples who make. To overcome this issue, the author conducts three studies which exploit three sources of variation in individual valuation of employer-provided group health care.

The first study considers the differential impact of health shocks on self-employed workers and wage and salary workers using panel data from the Health and Retirement Study. which health shocks result in changes in labor market outcomes.

Exploiting detailed admin-istrative earnings and hospital data from Chile, we use propensity score weighting combined with di erence-in-di erences and xed e ects strategies to uncover the role of education in the labor market e ects of health shocks.

This thesis examines the labor force participation decisions of married couples, and special attention is paid to a spouse’s health conditions affecting their own and the spouse’s labor force participation decision.

Couples insure against both permanent and transitory wage shocks via household labor supply, while labor response is larger to the shocks which are permanent.

human capital and, subsequently, future labor supply choices and income. This suggests an interaction between health and human capital that has not been addressed, and yet ignoring it could lead to a biased assessment of how health and wages, and attendant public policies such as taxes and transfers, affect labor supply over the life cycle.

Household labor supply is an important insurance mechanism against health shocks. Access to health insurance helps households to maintain investment in children's human capital during negative health shocks, which suggests that one benefit of health insurance could arise from reducing the use of costly smoothing mechanisms.

For example, a relaxation of immigration policies (i.e., the H-visa program of the late 's in support of the "tech" boom) would shift labor supply outwards putting downward. The exogeneity of this labor supply shock, a result of restrictive border policies, and the division of the West Bank into local labor markets provide a unique environment to study the e⁄ects of labor supply shocks on labor market outcomes.
