Health and Labor Market Performance: The Case of Diabetes
Technological innovation has reduced the effect of diabetes. Diabetic behavioral modification in the face and expectation of medical improvement should lead to improved labor-market outcomes. This article uses three cross-sectional data sets, from 1976, 1989, and 1992, to document improvements in diabetic labor-market performance. Women diabetics have significantly increased their labor-force participation while male diabetics have slightly reduced their participation relative to nondiabetics.
