A Microeconometric Evaluation of Rehabilitation of Long-term Sickness in Sweden
AbstractIn this study the effects of various types of rehabilitation programmes on different labour market and health related outcomes are estimated. The main feature of this study, compared to previous research, is that it jointly evaluates multiple treatments by nonparametric matching estimators. The study is based on a sample of 6287 persons in western Sweden who are long-term sick observed during 1991 to 1994 and could participate in rehabilitation programmes. Our results suggest that work-place training is superior to the other rehabilitation programmes with respect to labour market outcomes. However, no positive effects of rehabilitation compared to non-participation are found.
