As the extent of disability increases in society, there is an increasing need to understand related consequences in many aspects of social inclusion. In this paper, we provide a rigorous analysis of the transitions into and out of disability and the related consequences for employment. We compare the effect of onset, exit and persistent disability on the probability of employment. This improves our capacity to estimate the effects of disability with precision and allows the channels whereby these effects operate to be traced with more confidence. The results imply that employment policy should focus on the heterogeneity of disabled people, depending on their respective transitions into disability and the duration of their disability.
