The asymmetric experience of gains and losses in job security on health
Health Economics, 2021, vol. 30, issue 9, 2217-2229
Is workers' health more sensitive to losses than gains in job security? I address this question using the 1999 rise in the French Delalande tax as a quasi‐natural experiment. The tax design allows to separately identify the causal impact of exogenous gains and losses in job security on workers' health. Difference‐in‐differences estimation results show that a greater job insecurity reduces significantly self‐reported health. At the same time, more job security does not translate into a higher level of self‐reported health.
