A Human Performance Model of Work Disability

This paper presents and evaluates a model of work-related disability from the perspective of the interaction between occupational performance requirements and performance abilities of impaired workers. The model is tested with data from the 1966, 1971, 1976, and 1981 waves of the NLS Older Men's cohort. The onset of an illness or injury producing a change in the occupational performance abilities of mature aged men as the result of the interaction between their functional impairments and the performance requirements of their job reduces employment participation by approximately 60 percent.

Racial Differences in Family Labor Supply
Presented: Boston, MA, Eastern Economics Association, 1983
Cohort(s): Mature Women
Publisher: Eastern Economic Association
Keyword(s): Earnings; Family Resources; Husbands, Income; Racial Differences; Wives

Permission to reprint the abstract has not been received from the publisher.

This study estimates the family labor supply model: annual labor supply for each spouse is a function of one's own and one's spouse's earned and unearned income. Labor supply is predicted for black and white wives and their husbands using tobit and OLS for the wives and OLS for the husbands. The labor supply model is fitted using data for l967 from the NLS of Mature Women. Wives reduced their labor supply in response to an increase in husband's wage for white but not black wives. Own earned income was more strongly positively related to labor supply for black than for white husbands.

Experience, Human Capital and Complementarity: The Case of Young Men
Presented: [S.L.], The Eastern Economic Association Meeting, 1976
Cohort(s): Young Men
Publisher: Eastern Economic Association
Keyword(s): Behavior; Earnings; Human Capital Theory; Schooling; Work Experience

Permission to reprint the abstract has not been received from the publisher.

This paper utilizes a human capital framework in analyzing the earnings of young men age 17 to 27 in 1969. In contrast to most of the previous work in this area, the implications of different types of experience for self- investment behavior and earnings are explored. In addition, explicit attention is devoted to possible complementarities or interactions among various types of human capital investment, particularly those interactions between schooling and investments undertaken in the context of labor market experience. The results suggest that there are significant differences in the earnings effects of different types of experience and that complementarities may be quite strong. Implications are drawn for manpower and educational policy and future work in modeling the determinants of earnings.

Military Service Effects for Minority Youth

Since the advent fifteen years ago of the all volunteer force, there has been various levels of concern about the increasing minority composition of the armed forces. The purpose of this paper is to turn around the focus of concern, examine the reasons that minority youth are attracted to the service as well as assess the impact of service on the youth. Both in-service and post-service aspects are examined. The latter is primarily based upon a pooled cross-section time-series data file from the NLSY. The analysis shows that minority youth have equal opportunity in the armed forces with respect to accession opportunity, pay, promotion, career opportunity, and job-satisfaction. Further, when compared to their non-veteran counterparts, veteran minority youth have greater success in the labor market, both with respect to wages and unemployment experience. The key deficiency was in job assignment within the armed forces; minority youth were overrepresented in the less technical, non-combat skills. Military personnel policy is analyzed and recommendations are suggested with respect to minority assistance.

Effects of Economic Conditions on the Labor Market Status and Experience of Displaced Older Male Workers

This study, using data from the Older Men's cohort 1966-1978, provides quantitative evidence bearing on five questions related to the labor market status and experiences of displaced older male workers: (1) How do workers displaced during the relatively good times of the late 1960s differ from those displaced during the relative bad times of the 1970s? (2) What are the determinants of job displacement? (3) How do age and economic conditions influence the propensity of displaced older men to opt for early retirement? (4) How do age and economic conditions influence the duration of employment experienced by displaced older men? (5) How do economic conditions influence the post-displacement wage rates of displaced older men who find new jobs? Comparison of workers displaced during the 1970s with those displaced during the late 1960s reveals that as the economy worsened, the average schooling of those displaced rose, as did the fraction of displaced men who had previously been employed in manufacturing, wholesale trade, and retail trade. Average tenure on the previous job also increased as the economy deteriorated.
