Abstract: This paper uses the 2002 NATSISS data to examine the linkages between employment and health status. Two measures of health status are used — self-assessed health and the presence of a long-term disability. Employment is modelled to exclude and then include CDEP employment. The results, which are fairly robust to the treatment of CDEP employment, indicate that both self-assessed health status and long-term disabilities have significant impacts on a person’s likelihood of being in employment.
