EXCEPT paper presented at the 4th workshop on Comparative Health Sociology in Ghent, Belgium


The 4th workshop on Comparative Health Sociology: Comparing Health across Societies (CHASE) took place in Ghent, Belgium. At the workshop, Jonas Vossemer presented a joint paper with three other EXCEPT researchers (Michael Gebel, Olena Nizalova and Olga Nikolaieva). The paper addresses the potential long-term health consequences of an early-career job loss and youth unemployment. The researchers used detailed retrospective data from the third wave (2008/09) of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE), to analyse whether an involuntary job loss in the first ten years after labour market entry has lasting negative effects on health (measured for more than 30 years later).
