Long-term employment effects of surviving cancer
We compare employment and usual hours of work for prime-age cancer survivors from the Penn State Cancer Survivor Survey to a comparison group drawn from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics using cross-sectional and difference-in-differences regression and matching estimators. Because earlier research has emphasized workers diagnosed at older ages, we focus on employment effects for younger workers. We find that as long as two to six years after diagnosis, cancer survivors have lower employment rates and work fewer hours than other similarly aged adults.
