Abstract

This article empirically estimates the effects of disability pensions provided under the Canada/Quebec Pension Plans on the labor-force participation rates of males aged 45-64 years. Two data sets are used. One consists of pooled cross section/annual time-series data by province for the years 1975-83. The other consists of observations as of 1985 on 651 males in the specified age group. Naive estimation results from both sets of data suggest a large negative effect of pension income. In the case of the micro data, this effect becomes small and statistically nonsignificant when more sophisticated estimation methods are used. Copyright 1993 by University of Chicago Press.
