Impact of Health on Employment and Wages for Young People
Applied Economics
(Master’s programme)
2017
Using the RLMS data from 2000 to 2015 we analysed the impact of health on wages and probability of labor force participation of adolescence (people aged 15-29). We used a self-assessed health variable. Applying both OLS and procedures to account for selective participation we found that health influences the choice of university’s quality. The poor health means that men will prefer less qualitative university. For woman the influence is insignificant. We also revealed that poor health reduces wages, hourly wage and the probability of labor force participation both for women and men
