This dissertation consists of three chapters in which static and dynamic panel data (instrumental variables) methods are employed to estimate econometric models in different contexts. Chapter 2 investigates the effects of rising health insurance premiums for employer-provided health insurance on wages, employment, and private health insurance coverage in the U.S. using a county-level panel dataset for the period 2005-2010. Chapter 3 analyzes the effect of job-related stress on smoking behavior of older U.S. workers using an individual-level longitudinal dataset for the period 1992-2010. Chapter 4 examines the effects of informal care provision on employment, work hours and health of caregivers using a longitudinal dataset for older European individuals for the period 2004-2013.
