SeaTE: Subjective ex ante Treatment Effect of Health on Retirement

Pamela Giustinelli () and Matthew Shapiro

No 26087, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: The Subjective ex ante Treatment Effect is the difference between the probabilities of an outcome conditional on a treatment. The SeaTE yields ex ante causal effects at the individual level. The paper gives an interpretation in two workhorse econometric frameworks: potential outcomes and dynamic programming. It finds large effect heterogeneity of health on work in two surveys of older workers, the VRI and the HRS. It shows how reduced-form estimates of health on work are biased when there is unobserved heterogeneity in taste for work. Using the VRI’s panel structure, it validates the elicited conditional probabilities of work given health.
