    Abstract

    Dans cet article nous spécifions et estimons des équations de salaire, de participation au marché du travail et d’offre de travail dans lesquelles figurent des variables sanitaires. Nous utilisons des données issues d’une d’enquête ménage, conduite en 1997 dans la capitale malgache, à partir desquelles nous construisons un Indicateur Composite d’Invalidité (ICI). Les estimations mises en oeuvre tiennent compte des biais potentiels de sélectivité et d’endogénéité. Les résultats démontrent l’existence d’une relation positive et significative entre la capacité physique et la probabilité de trouver un travail. Par ailleurs, les indicateurs sanitaires affectent le taux de salaire mais pas significativement le temps de travail.
