Abstract

This longitudinal study examines the consequences of breast cancer on women's labor market attachment for the six-month period following diagnosis. Women with breast cancer, with the exception of those having in situ cancer, were less likely to work six months following diagnosis relative to a control sample of women drawn from the Current Population Survey. Women with advanced cancers (i.e., not in situ) who continued to work did so for fewer hours than women in the control group. The study highlights the importance of using a control group when estimating the effects of illness on labor supply.
