Chronic Illness and Retirement in Jamaica
Sudhanshu Handa Monica Neitzert
Price: $ 22

Living Standards Measurement Study Working Paper No. 131. This paper explores the impact of six noncommunicable chronic diseases (NCCDs) on Jamaicans¿ decisions to retire. Using the 1991 and 1992 Survey of Living Conditions database it examines the significantly negative impact that NCCDs have on people remaining in employment. Chapters present findings that suggest the need to integrate health and labor market policies; discuss health transition and the labor market in Jamaica; give data, samples, and health measures; provide an econometric model; examine NCCDs in respect to gender and other social issues; and present sensitivity analysis on the impact of physical health status on employment.
