|Longitudinal Study:||HILDA||Title:||Improving the Employment Rates of People with Disabilities through Vocational Education||Authors:||Polidano, C
|Abstract:||During the 2001-8 period, the employment rate of people with a disability remained remarkably low in most western economies, hardly responding to better macroeconomic conditions and favourable anti-discrimination legislation and interventions. Continuing health and productivity improvements in the general population are leaving people with disabilities behind, unable to play their role and have their share in the increasing productive capacity of the economy. This paper combines dynamic panel econometric estimation with longitudinal data from Australia to show that vocational education has a considerable and long lasting positive effect on the employment participation and productivity of people with disabilities.||URL:||http://www.melbourneinstitute.com/hilda||Keywords:||Health; Health -- Disability; Education and Training; Employment||Research collection:||Reports and technical papers|
