Abstract

I use a latent variable model to estimate the effect of disability status on the labor force participation of older men in Canada, with data from the National Population Health Survey. The estimates from this paper indicate that disability status has a large negative effect on the labor force participation of older Canadian males. It is difficult to compare these estimates with previous Canadian estimates because of differences in methodology and data. However, my estimates appear to be larger than those from US data. Some of the implications of these estimates for disability policy are also discussed.
