Determinants of Labor Market Outcomes of Disabled Men Before and After the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
Korean Economic Review, 2013, vol. 29, 211-233
This study compares the labor market experiences of men with disabilities before and after the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. After estimating employment and wage functions using the Heckman sample selection model, we decompose the employment and wage differentials using appropriate decomposition techniques (Even and McPherson 1990; Neuman and Oaxaca 2004). The analyses are performed using data from the Survey of Income Program Participation extending from six years before to 11 years after the passage of the ADA. The results indicate that employment and wage gaps between disabled and nondisabled men have risen sharply over time. Overall, discrimination on entry to employment is more important than wage discrimination and the ADA had less effect on reducing discrimination in employment opportunities than on wage discrimination.
