Abstract

In this work we analyse the disability phenomenon from a dynamic perspective to identify the different trajectories that working-age individuals follow over a 7-year period (1995-2001). The results obtained from the microdata of the European Community Household Panel for Spain show that a high percentage of disabled people are disabled in the short-term, especially in the case of women. However, when the same analysis is done for any specific year, disabled people are firmly located on long-term trajectories. We also identify significant differences in the probability of having a certain trajectory according to the socioeconomic characteristics of the individuals. When we analyse how long the disability lasts we find that although the number of disabled people who remain disabled decreases significantly in the first few years the percentage stays relatively stable in the remaining years. En este trabajo se analiza la discapacidad desde una perspectiva dinámica con el objetivo de identificar las diferentes trayectorias que siguen los individuos en edad de trabajar a lo largo de un periodo temporal de siete años (1995-2001). A partir de los microdatos del Panel de Hogares de la Unión Europea para España, los resultados obtenidos muestran el elevado porcentaje de individuos que son discapacitados de corta duración, especialmente en el caso de las mujeres. Sin embargo, cuando se realiza este mismo análisis para un determinado año, las discapacidades se concentran en las trayectorias más largas. También, se detectan diferencias significativas en la probabilidad de encontrarse en alguna de las trayectorias de discapacidad según las características socioeconómicas de los individuos. Al analizar la duración de la discapacidad se observa que aunque el número de individuos que permanecen discapacitados decrece significativamente en los primeros años el porcentaje se mantiene estable en el resto de años.
