Abstract

This paper investigates the role of pain in affecting self-reported work disability and employment of elderly workers in the US.We investigate pain and its relationship to work disability and work in a dynamic panel data model, using six biennial waves from the Health and Retirement Study.We find the dynamics of the presence of pain is central to understanding the dynamics of self-reported work disability.By affecting work disability pain also has important implications for the dynamic patterns of employment.
