Work Disability is a Pain in the ****, Especially in England, the Netherlands, and the United States
In: Health at Older Ages: The Causes and Consequences of Declining Disability among the Elderly
This paper investigates the role of pain in determining self-reported work disability in the U.S., the U.K. and The Netherlands. Even if identical questions are asked, cross-country differences in reported work disability remain substantial. In the U.S. and the Netherlands, respondent evaluations of work limitations of hypothetical persons described in pain vignettes are used to identify the extent to which differences in self-reports between countries or socio-economic groups are due to systematic variation in the response scales.
