Estimating the impact of diabetes on employment in Taiwan
This paper investigates the impact of diabetes on employment based on the 2005 National Health Interview Survey in Taiwan using a recursive bivariate probit model. The findings show that diabetes has a negative and significant effect on employment, and that the magnitude is larger for men than for women. The results of this study also suggest that neglecting the potential endogeneity of diabetes will lead to an underestimation of the negative impact of diabetes on employment.
