Estimating the employment effects of education for disabled workers in Norway
In this paper we evaluate the effectiveness of educational programmes used as an employment strategy for disabled workers in Norway. To obtain these estimates we follow the employment career of a sample of participants in educational programmes and nonparticipants three years after they had left the vocational rehabilitation benefit system. We specify an employment outcome model that includes both unobserved heterogeneity and selection bias due to correlation between unmeasured factors and a person's training status. Even though participants in educational programmes have employment rates that are around eight percentage points higher than those who did not participate in such programmes, econometric selection models produce a training effect for education not significantly different from zero.
