THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL HOUSING ON THE LABOUR MARKET STATUS OF THE DISABLED

Stéphane Gregoir and Tristan-Pierre Maury ()

Health Economics, 2013, vol. 22, issue 9, 1124-1138

Abstract: Disability may impact on employment through entitlement to social housing. Estimates of an original dynamic panel data model of disability, labour market and housing tenure transitions in England indicate that up to one‐quarter of the lower employment probability of the disabled can be attributed to the effect of qualifying for social housing. Short‐lived disabilities can result in long spells in social housing that reduce incentives to participate in the labour market. This suggests that authorities should reform the welfare system and the allocation of social housing to limit the persistent and unfavourable consequences of allocating social housing to the disabled.
