Estimating the Employment Effects of Education for Disabled Workers in Norway
Norway; Department of Economics, University of Bergen from Department of Economics, University of Bergen
In this paper we evaluate the effectiveness of educational programs used as an employment strategy for diabled workers in Norway. To obtain these estimates we follow the employment career of a sample of participants in educational programs and nonparticipants three years after they had left the vocational rehabilitation benefit system. We specify an employment outcome model that includes both unobserved heterogeneity and selection bias due to correlation between unmeasured factors and a person's training status.
