On the impact of social housing on the labour position of disabled
AbstractDisability has consequences on the dynamic changes in the positions on the labour and housing markets that may be magnifying each other. We estimate the share in the gap in labour force participation between able-bodied and disabled people that can be attributed to differences in individual home tenure histories. Based on an original multivariate dynamic panel data model relying on BHPS data from 1992 to 2008 and sequential estimation of two models related on the one hand to individual annual transition probabilities on the labour and housing markets and on the other hand to transition probabilities regarding health, we show that some of the medium run (between 5 and 8 years) decrease in employment probability for the disabled can be attributed to a negative social housing sector channel. The discrimination effect on employment for disabled people cumulates with a lower probability of participating in the job market when living in the public housing sector.
