The 8th EXCEPT working paper “Interdependencies between labour market insecurity and well-being - evidence from panel data” is out
20.12.2016

The aim of this report is to present the evidence on the causal effects of various forms of labour market insecurity on health and well-being based on longitudinal data. Specifically, it examines self-rated health and life satisfaction in both short and long-term perspectives.

The research analyses the overall association between different forms of labour market insecurity, labour market exclusion and different measures of subjective well-being and health. This included an investigation of how these effects vary across different subgroups of youths. The working paper also presents a subgroup specific analysis of most disadvantaged groups of youth to uncover potential cumulative risks and disadvantages. Moreover, it shows how the effects extend beyond the young people directly affected by labour market insecurity.

The analysis is based on the selected national panel survey and life history survey data (the Social Diagnosis data from Poland, the Ukrainian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey from Ukraine) as well as comparative harmonized longitudinal surveys (The Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE), the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC)) that provides detailed measures of health and well-being.
