''Disability insurance eligibility criteria and the labor supply of older men''
( 2003, Vol. 10 No.3 )
I estimate the effect of allowing individuals to use socioeconomic conditions to qualify for disability benefits on the labor supply of older men in Canada. I obtain my estimates using a difference-in-difference approach and I also adjust my standard errors to properly account for the sampling variability in the data. I find that this policy change led to a 1.5 percentage increase in the nonparticipation of older men (aged 45 to 64) in the CPP provinces, relative to Quebec where there was no change in eligibility requirements.
