Post-traumatic epilepsy: its complications and impact on occupational rehabilitation--an epidemiological study from India. (1/2858)

The objective of this study was to assess the prevalence of seizure disorder, neuropsychiatric disorders and reproductive outcome of employees with post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) and their effect on occupational rehabilitation. A case-comparison group study design was used to compare 30 subjects with PTE with (1) 129 non-PTE and (2) 55 non-PTE matched control employees. The 55 non-PTE matched controls were selected from the 129 non-PTE employees on the basis of age, age at onset of seizure, age at marriage and length of employment. The PTE group had a lower fertility rate than the controls and more neuropsychiatric disorders and seizure disability. PTE employees were more occupationally rehabilitated than non-PTE employees (p = 0.033). Of the 30 PTE subjects, thirteen who were rehabilitated by placement had more seizure disability (p = 0.007) and a higher fertility rate (p = 0.018). High prevalence of seizure disability and increased fertility rate among the placed PTE employees suggested that there might be some association between severity of seizures and increased production of live offspring and work placement. Work suitability or placement should not be judged on clinical assessment only but psychosocial seizure assessment, disability evaluation and other psychometric tests which are of equal importance.  (+info)

The social and economic effects of manic depressive illness and of its treatment in lithium clinics. (2/2858)

Advising about the employment of those who have had manic depressive episodes requires Occupational Health Physicians to obtain, with consent, an objective account of previous episodes and to appreciate the enormous range of manic and depressive manifestations. Familiarity is needed with the likely effects of treatment of episodes and the benefits and problems of prophylaxis--not just in general but in individual cases, for example, where driving is required. This article summarizes research into the effects of lithium preparations on the course of the illness, thyroid and renal function and the risk of suicide. The author found that changing from treatment of episodes to continuous prophylaxis benefited employment and personal relationships without causing body weight problems. Many patients do well in life if supported by an experienced professional team, with 61% requiring no further admissions once on lithium, and with an 86% reduction in admissions achieved in our local clinic.  (+info)

Why are workers uninsured? Employer-sponsored health insurance in 1997. (3/2858)

This study examines the number of workers in firms offering employee health plans, the number of workers eligible for such plans, and participation in employer-sponsored insurance. Data from the February 1997 Contingent Worker Supplement to the Current Population Survey indicate that 10.1 million workers are employed by firms offering insurance but are not eligible. Not all of these workers are eligible for coverage, most often because of hours of work. Our results indicate that 11.4 million workers rejected coverage when it was offered. Of those, 2.5 million workers were uninsured. Workers cited high cost of insurance most often as the primary factor for refusing coverage.  (+info)

Depression during the longitudinal course of schizophrenia. (4/2858)

This prospective research investigated the occurrence and persistence of depression during the longitudinal course of schizophrenia. The research goals were to (1) compare depression in schizophrenia with that in schizoaffective and major depressive disorders, (2) assess whether some schizophrenia patients are vulnerable to depression, and (3) assess the relationship of depression to posthospital adjustment in schizophrenia. A total of 70 schizophrenia, 31 schizoaffective depressed, 17 psychotic unipolar major depressed, and 69 nonpsychotic unipolar major depressed patients were assessed during hospitalization and prospectively assessed for depression, psychosis, and posthospital functioning at 4.5- and 7.5-year followups. A large number (30% to 40%) of schizophrenia patients evidenced full depressive syndromes at each followup, including a subgroup of patients who evidenced repeated depression. Even when considering the influence of psychosis on outcome, depression in schizophrenia was associated with poor overall outcome, work impairment, lower activity, dissatisfaction, and suicidal tendencies. During the post-acute phase assessed, neither the rates nor the severity of depressive syndromes differentiated depression in schizophrenia from schizodepressive or major depressive disorders. However, the depressed schizophrenia patients showed poorer posthospital adjustment in terms of less employment, more rehospitalizations, and more psychosis than the patients with primary major depression. The high prevalence of depression in schizophrenia warrants its incorporation into theory about the disorder. A continuum of vulnerability to depression contributes to the heterogeneity of schizophrenia, with some schizophrenia patients being prone to depression even years after the acute phase. Depression in schizophrenia is one factor, in addition to psychosis, associated with poor outcome and requires specific attention to the treatment strategies by psychiatrists.  (+info)

Gender, work and illness: the influence of a research unit on an agricultural community in The Gambia. (5/2858)

Changes in employment opportunities and medical services are exploited by men and women in different ways. This paper examines gender-based variation in the selective use of employment and health opportunities in a Gambian village which has been the subject of medical and nutritional research by the Medical Research Council (MRC) for 43 years. The seasonal workloads of 105 men and women in Keneba were compared during one calendar year. Women carried a heavier burden of agricultural labour, while men had a higher rate of waged employment. The impact of the MRC field station on the local economy was assessed and evidence of associated male dependence on MRC employment found. Illness reporting patterns and the treatment choices of men and women were examined. Women made greater use of the MRC medical service, while men resorted more frequently to local remedies and healers. Female dependence on the MRC medical services is suggested by the data, and may be linked to the greater attention paid to them by researchers and medical practitioners.  (+info)

Resource utilization and work or school loss reported by patients with diabetes: experience in diabetes training programs. (6/2858)

Diabetes exerts a major economic impact on healthcare in the United States both in terms of direct and indirect costs. Diabetes management and education programs designed to assist patients in achieving more optimal glycemic control represent a potential mechanism for reducing the morbidity and costs associated with diabetes. The relationship between HbA1c and patient hospitalizations and between HbA1c and days lost from work or school related to diabetes within the past year were evaluated. A cohort of 2359 patients with diabetes (188 type I, 2171 type II) referred to a comprehensive diabetes self-management training program was included in the analyses. Overall, 350 (14.8%) patients reported hospitalization, and 212 (9.0%) reported days lost from work or school. Patients with type I diabetes reported more hospitalizations (26.1% vs 13.9% and days lost (19.2% vs 8.1%) than type II patients. For the hospitalization outcome, the multivariate analyses indicated that younger age, the number of co-morbidities, and the duration of diabetes exerted a greater influence on the reported numbers of hospitalization than glycemic control. For the days lost outcome, the multivariate analyses indicated that there was a marginally significant association between patients with poor glycemic control and reported work or school loss related to diabetes (odds ratio = 1.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.0-2.2). These data suggest that interventions that improve glycemic control may decrease indirect costs related to diabetes.  (+info)

The effects of clonazepam on quality of life and work productivity in panic disorder. (7/2858)

Although panic disorder has been associated with impaired quality of life (QOL) and financial dependence, no prior study has examined whether a clinical intervention will improve these outcomes. This study examines the effects of clinically titrated doses of clonazepam versus placebo on QOL and work productivity (WP) in patients with panic disorder. QOL and WP were measured in conjunction with a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. The Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) and Work Productivity and Impairment questionnaire were used to assess QOL and WP, respectively. Baseline assessments were obtained before randomizing patients to receive clinically titrated doses of clonazepam or placebo. Follow-up assessments were obtained after 6 weeks of therapy with the test drug or at premature termination from the study. Improvement on the SF-36 Mental Health Component Summary scale was more than twice as great with clonazepam than with placebo (P = 0.03). Clonazepam patients improved (P < 0.05) on all five measures of mental health-related QOL, and both measures of physical health-related QOL, and both measures of WP. Placebo patients improved on three of five measures of mental health-related QOL, but on no other measures. Patients with marked improvements on clinical measures of panic disorder severity, especially avoidance and fear of the main phobia, showed the greatest gains on the SF-36 Mental Health Component Summary scale. Clinically titrated doses of clonazepam significantly improved mental health-related QOL and WP in panic disorder patients. Lesser improvements were obtained with placebo.  (+info)

Health sector reform in central and eastern Europe: the professional dimension. (8/2858)

The success or failure of health sector reform in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe depends, to a large extent, on their health care staff. Commentators have focused on the structures to be put in place, such as mechanisms of financing or changes in ownership of facilities, but less attention has been paid to the role and status of the different groups working in health care services. This paper draws on a study of trends in staffing and working conditions throughout the region. It identifies several key issues including the traditionally lower status and pay of health sector workers compared to the West, the credibility crisis of trade unions, and the under-developed roles of professional associations. In order to implement health sector reforms and to address the deteriorating health status of the population, the health sector workforce has to be restructured and training programmes reoriented towards primary care. Finally, the paper identifies emerging issues such as the erosion of 'workplace welfare' and its adverse effects upon a predominantly female health care workforce.  (+info)

In this project, we employ data from the Chinese population censuses of 1982, 1990, and 2000 to examine reform-era changes in the patterns of male and female labor force participation and in the distribution of men???s and women???s occupational attainment. Very marked patterns of change in labor force participation emerge when we disaggregate the data by age cohort, marital status, sex, and rural/urban location. Women have decreased their labor force participation more than men, and urban women much more than rural women. Single young people in urban areas have decreased their labor force participation to stay in school to a much greater extent than single young people in rural areas. The urban elderly have decreased their rates of labor force participation while the rural elderly have increased theirs. We also find evidence of the feminization of agriculture.
If the labor force participation rate had not dropped due to the weak labor market, and instead the people who made up the cyclical decline in the labor force participation rate were in the labor force and counted as unemployed, the unemployment rate would now be significantly higher. The last two columns of the table explore the possible impact of the cyclical decline in the labor force participation rate since the start of the Great Recession on the unemployment rate. These columns provide the unemployment rate in 2011, along with what the unemployment rate would have been if the workers who made up the difference between the 2011 labor force participation rate and its long-term trend-i.e., the workers who dropped out of, or never entered, the labor force because of weak job prospects-had instead been in the labor force and counted as unemployed. For all groups except men age 55 and older, the unemployment rate in 2011 would have been higher. For prime-age men, it would have been nearly 10 ...
Downloadable! We build a general equilibrium model with endogenous saving, labor force participation, work hours and social security benefit claiming, in which overlapping generations of individuals face income, survival and health expenditure risks in incomplete markets. We use the model to study the impact of three Social Security reforms; reduction in benefits and payroll taxes, increase in the early retirement age from 62 to 64 and increase in the normal retirement age from 66 to 68. We show that a reform can have a significant effect on the budget of the Social Security through the changes in savings as well as the benefit claiming and labor force participation. When the projected aging of the population is taken into account, the case for a reform that encourages labor force participation of the elderly becomes stronger.
Labor Force Participation Rate in Portugal is expected to be 58.10 percent by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate Labor Force Participation Rate in Portugal to stand at 58.00 in 12 months time. In the long-term, the Portugal Labor Force Participation Rate is projected to trend around 57.80 percent in 2020, according to our econometric models.
Study Purpose: This project examined the impact of intimate partner violence on labor force participation of current and former welfare recipients and determined whether change in welfare status affected violence levels. This study sought to identify the incidence of partner violence among recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) over a three-year period, to examine the impact of partner violence on womens labor force participation over time, and to explore the short and longer-term consequences of victimization on the womens employment and economic well-being, as well as their physical and mental health. Specifically, the goals were to: (1) assess the impact of violence on employment over time while controlling for other factors (such as ethnicity, physical and mental health, household composition, childcare, and transportation) that may also be related to violence and employment, and (2) examine whether change in womens self-sufficiency (e.g., through loss of welfare ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - How co-morbidities magnify the effect of arthritis on labour force participation and economic status: A costs of illness study in Australia. AU - Schofield, Deborah J..

N2 - Few studies have assessed the impact of co-morbid conditions amongst patients with arthritis. This study will quantify the impact co-morbid health conditions have on the labour force status and economic circumstances of people with arthritis. This study uses a microsimulation model, HealthWealthMOD, to quantify the impact of co-morbidities on the labour force participation and economic circumstances of 45- to 64-year-old Australians with arthritis. The results show that the probability of being out of the labour force increases with increasing number of co-morbidities. However, there was no statistically significant difference in the amount of weekly private income ...
TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT Temporary employment is work that is not a permanent job. Rather, temporary employment allows an individual to work for shorter terms in a variety of jobs utilizing many skills. The scope of temporary employment is wide-ranging. In many cases, temporary employment can lead to permanent positions. Temporary employment is an expanding type of work in the twenty-first century. As America joins the global marketplace in seeking qualified employees for its work force, temporary employment is playing a major part in the process.

Childrens lives continued to change dramatically during the past 50 years with regard to where and with whom they spent their time and the economic resources available in their families. Increases in mothers labor force participation have removed many mothers from the home for much of the day, leaving children in the care of persons other than their parents. Enormous increases in one-parent fam- ilies maintained by mothers have removed fathers from the homes of many children.

This study of 438 women aged 18-65 in the Detroit metropolitan area in 1974 provides information on their participation in the labor force. Data are provided on the job histories of respondents, up to 14 previous occupations in order to assess the nature of work, length of stay on the job, and the status of public or private employment. Respondents were asked questions about the various jobs they had held, such as their feelings toward their jobs, their reasons for working, job titles held, membership in labor unions, health conditions that might have affected their work, reasons for leaving their jobs, and the geographic location of their workplace, as well as their feelings of job security and job satisfaction. Other questions probed respondents feelings about equal job opportunities for men and women, equal privileges for women and men, the removal of the glass ceiling for women in Americas corporate and political life, the implications for the marriage if a wife earned more than her ...
We examine trends in self-employment among white and black men from 1910 to 1990 using Census and CPS microdata. Self-employment rates fell over most of the century and then started to rise after 1970. For white men, we find that the decline was due to declining rates within industries, but was counterbalanced somewhat by a shift in employment towards high self-employment industries. Recently, the increase in self-employment was caused by an end to the within industry decline and the continuing shift in employment towards high self-employment industries. We find that the trends in self-employment average returns do not easily explain the decline in self-employment from 1950 to 1970, nor the increase from 1970 to 1990. We also find that changes in tax rates, social security benefits, and immigration patterns do not explain the recent upturn in self-employment. For black men, we find that the self-employment rate remained at a level of roughly one-third the white rate from 1910 to 1990. The large ...
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of April 2014, the labor force participation rate was 62.8%.[6] The overall labor force participation rate is expected to decline for the remainder of the decade, projected to fall to 62.5% in 2020.[7] By the year 2020, the subpopulation of older adults in the United States is expected to reach 97.8 million people, comprising 28.7% percent of the entire U.S. population, a rise from the 24.7% in 2010.[7] This increase in proportion of older adults can be attributed to the entire Baby Boomer cohort joining the older adult population (ages 55+) by 2020. It is projected that by 2020, the proportion of the U.S. labor force that is composed of older adults will be 25.2%.[2][7] This continues a trend in increasing rates of older adults remaining in the workforce, as the rates were 13.1% in 2000 and 19.5% in 2010.[7] A complementary trend that follows this is the increasing median age of the U.S. workforce. By 2020, the workforce is expected to have a ...
We examine the roles of sample initial conditions and unobserved individual effects in consistent estimation of the dynamic binary response panel data model. Different specifications of the model are estimated using female welfare and labor force participation data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation. These include alternative random effects (RE) models, in which the conditional distributions of both the unobserved heterogeneity and the initial conditions are specified, and fixed effects (FE) conditional logit models that make no assumptions on either distribution. There are several findings. First, the hypothesis that the sample initial conditions are exogenous is rejected by both samples. Misspecification of the initial conditions results in drastically overstated estimates of the state dependence and understated estimates of the short- and long-run effects of children on labor force participation. The FE conditional logit estimates are similar to the estimates from the RE ...

2) For the purpose of this paragraph the term wages includes remuneration paid to an employee for services covered by an agreement entered into under section 218 of the Act, or an agreement entered into under section 3121(l) of the Code, which would be wages under section 209 of Act if the services were considered employment under section 210(a) of the Act. (c)Minimum net earnings from self employment. (1) Self-employment income does not include your net earnings from self-employment when the amount of those earnings for the taxable year is less than $400. If you have only $300 of net earnings from self-employment for the taxable year you would not have any self-employment income. (Special rules apply if you are paid $100 or more and work for a church or church-controlled organization that has exempted its employees (see § 404.1068(f)).)

Considering the most recent changes in the pension systems in Europe, this article aims to evaluate whether there is any relationship between the employment rates of older cohorts and the employment and unemployment rates in the youngest cohorts of a productive age. Its key finding is that there is no evidence that would indicate that the lower professional activity of older people is accompanied by higher employment and lower unemployment among young people. On the contrary, the study reveals that the higher the labour force participation among the elderly, the better the situation for young cohorts in the labour market. As demonstrated by the results of our empirical research, factors such as unfavourable demographics and the inefficiency of government policy aiming at stimulating the development of the labour market influence the prospects of young people entering this market.

The nation needs to rethink its outlook and policies on working and retirement, said Ronald Lee, professor of demography and economics at the University of California, Berkeley, and committee co-chair. Although 65 has conventionally been considered a normal retirement age, it is an increasingly obsolete threshold for defining old age and for setting benefits for the elderly. The committee found that there is substantial potential for increased labor force participation at older ages, which would boost national output, slow the draw-down on retirement savings, and allow workers to save longer. The report adds that longer working lives would have little effect on employment opportunities for younger workers, productivity, or innovation ...
For release 10:00 a.m. (EST) Tuesday, December 8, 2015 USDL-15-2327 Technical information: (202) 691-5700 [email protected] www.bls.gov/emp Media contact: (202) 691-5902 [email protected] EMPLOYMENT PROJECTIONS -- 2014-24 Healthcare occupations and industries are expected to have the fastest employment growth and to add the most jobs between 2014 and 2024, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. With the increase in the proportion of the population in older age groups, more people in the labor force will be entering prime retirement age. As a result, the labor force participation rate is projected to decrease and labor force growth to slow. This slowdown of labor force growth is expected, in turn, to lead to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of 2.2 percent annually over the decade. This economic growth is projected to generate 9.8 million new jobs--a 6.5-percent increase between 2014 and 2024. The projections are predicated on assumptions including a 5.2 percent unemployment rate ...
Over the longer term, the Employment Population Ratio has been fairly flat as the unemployment rate kept dropping. So where is the inconsistency? One measure that explains this disconnect is called the Labor Force Participation Rate. It measures the total US labor force, combining both the employed as well as the unemployed, as a proportion of the total working age population. This measure is showing that the total labor force has been shrinking relative to the corresponding age group. And that explains a good deal of the reduction in the unemployment rate as the number of people officially employed has been measured against an increasingly smaller labor force (with many unemployed simply exiting ...

Summary:. This Selected Issues paper analyzes labor market policies and unemployment dynamics in Spain. It provides a brief overview of economic developments and the institutional evolution of the Spanish labor market. The paper presents a basic model of the labor market, which is estimated for 1971-93. The regression results establish the basic underlying relationships among employment, labor force participation, and real wages. They also illustrate the importance of lags in the econometric specification and allow the identification of key structural changes in the labor market.. ...
As Dave Altig, Atlanta Fed research director, pointed out earlier this week in this blog post, there is a great deal of interest these days in the labor force participation rate-particularly its level and the direction its going. The question that seems to be on everyones mind is how many of the nonparticipants in the labor force can we expect to return to the market. The answer to this question has immediate implications for the unemployment rate (especially if all these nonparticipants were to return to unemployment rolls), and longer-term implications for economic growth-our economy needs workers to fuel production.. The analyses that I can find to date are all primarily focused on a statistical detangling of demographic versus behavioral changes, structural versus cyclical changes, and employment trend versus employment gap debates. But all of this discussion begs the question that my colleague, Melinda Pitts, and I have been investigating: What are these labor force nonparticipants doing? ...

It took a few weeks, but the relatively recent smokescreen of a strengthening economy put forth by Ben Bernanke began to lift yesterday.. I find it especially interesting that it was not some new string of weak economic data that prompted the Fed chair to express increased caution about what is truly going on in the real world economy.. In fact, for what I believe might be the first time, Bernanke cautiously addressed the fact that the structural changes in our economy reflected in a significant decline in the labor force participation rate might be more indicative of our economic health than the actual unemployment rate.. A whiff of the truth amidst the daily diet of verbal diarrhea emanating from D.C? What a novel concept. (more…). ...

Release: May 11, 2001. Employment opportunities remain strong at UI Hospitals and Clinics IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Despite challenges facing the University of Iowa in light of a proposed reduction of its appropriation from the state legislature, employment opportunities remain strong at UI Hospitals and Clinics, according to officials there. We are projecting that the modest growth in volume and revenue we have experienced this year will continue into fiscal year 2002 and that our budget will actually grow, said Ann Madden Rice, associate director and chief financial officer at UI Hospitals and Clinics.. Such financial stability allows UI Hospitals and Clinics to allocate funds for salaries, benefits and recognition targeted to retaining current staff and to recruit new staff. We are actively recruiting health care professionals and will continue to do so, said Diana Leventry, director of staff relations and development at UI Hospitals and Clinics. We remain committed to being the employer of ...

Dayton, Ohios labor force participation rate has been falling since the Great Recession and this is contributing to the citys opioid problem. Policies that encourage work rather than discourage it are needed to solve both.
Income and wealth levels generally vary over peoples lives and are affected by two main factors: (1) their age and their employment situation. Incomes tend to grow until middle age, when labour force participation and earning capacity is at its peak, and decline in older age as people transition out of the paid workforce; (2) wealth tends to be gradually accumulated during the working lives of household members and can then be used during retirement (Graph 2 ...
As you can see from the chart above, this decline in the velocity of money has been going on since the late 1990s. This is a sign of a very unhealthy economy.. Most Americans know that the U.S. economy is very heavily dependent on consumer spending. But consumers have to make money first in order to spend it. And right now we have a major employment crisis in this country.. At this point, the labor force participation rate in the United States is at a 35 year low, and an all-time record 102 million working age Americans do not have a job.. Meanwhile, the quality of our jobs continues to decline as well. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, median household income in the United States has fallen for five years in a row, and right now the middle class is taking home a smaller share of the overall income pie than has ever been recorded before.. So should it really be such a surprise that consumers are totally tapped out?. The money simply is not there.. After accounting for inflation, 40 percent of ...
Today the labor force participation rate is the lowest since February 1978, reversing all of the gains of the Reagan years, and the Federal Reserve has used an increase in consumer debt to fill in for the missing growth in consumer income for so long that consumers have no more room to take on more debt.
Methods We used baseline data (2000) from The Danish Longitudinal Study on Work, Unemployment and Health, including 9875 men and women aged 36-52 years, linked to the Danish Cause of Death Registry for information on all-cause mortality until 31 December 2011. Associations between stressful social relations with partner, children, other family, friends and neighbours, respectively, and all-cause mortality were examined using Cox proportional hazards models adjusted for age, gender, cohabitation status, occupational social class, hospitalisation with chronic disorder 1980-baseline, depressive symptoms and perceived emotional support. Modification by gender and labour force participation was investigated by an additive hazards model.. ...
Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Dara Calleary TD has said that the loss of more than 220 jobs in Dublin and Kerry is a major setback.. Deputy Calleary made the comments as it emerged that Cadbury owner Mondelez will cut 160 jobs at its chocolate manufacturing plants in Rathmore, Co. Kerry and Coolock Co. Dublin. The company is also closing its chewing gum production plant in Tallaght, with a further loss of 45 jobs.. Deputy Calleary commented, Todays announcement is a serious blow and will have a really negative impact on the local economy in Kerry and Dublin. It is a difficult time for workers and their families along with the wider community that relies on these jobs. I hope that staff and management at Mondelez can come to an agreement to protect as many jobs as possible.. Earlier this week CSO figures showed that the pace of progress is slowing. The data showed a worrying decline in labour force participation in 2014 while the rate of job creation has slowed ...
Have you started your own business, freelance, or work as an independent contractor? Then get ready to pay the self-employment tax, which is a tax you never had to pay as an employee. The self-employment tax (officially known as the SECA tax for Self-Employment Contributions Act tax) is the self-employed persons version of the tax paid by employers and employees for Social Security and Medicare, and its due on your net earnings from self-employment.
The recent effects of immigration on the Argentine economy appear to be limited but positive. On average, immigration is not associated with job losses or income declines for the population born in Argentina. High-skilled immigration is on the contrary even associated with rising labour incomes among university graduates and female low-skilled immigration is associated with a higher labour-force participation of low-skilled native-born women. The estimated contribution of immigrants to value added is below their labour force participation share but above their population share. The estimated contribution of immigrants to public finance in 2013 was small. Additional migration and non-migration policies and better co-ordination between various policy areas could further improve the integration and economic contributions of immigrants.. How Immigrants Contribute to Argentinas Economy is the result of a project carried out by the OECD Development Centre and the International Labour Organization, ...

The authors examine the most important factors behind the increase in labor force participation realized to date: the shift in the skill composition of the workforce, and technological change.
Job quality and its improvement is an important policy concern, as quality jobs are crucial for higher labour force participation, higher well-being and increased economic performance. Job quality is also a key component in making work sustainable and enabling workers to remain motivated to remain in work for longer. It is central to the ILOs Decent Work Agenda, the OECDs

An employment contract should always be executed in writing, although even a verbal agreement is legally binding. A 15-year-old may sign, terminate and cancel his/her employment contract himself/herself. For a young person under the age of 15, the employment contract may be signed by his/her guardian or by himself/herself with the guardians consent.. If the employment contract is not executed in writing and the employment relationship lasts for more than one month, the employer must at his own initiative give the employee a written explanation of the principal terms and conditions of employment, no later than the end of the first pay period. This explanation must contain the details specified in the Employment Contracts Act: wages, working hours, job duties, duration of the employment relationship and the applicable collective agreement.. The employer must also issue a written explanation as referred to above in an employment relationship lasting less than one month if the young worker or ...

Wolter Hassink and Bas van Leeuwen got interesting data from Indonesia. The dataset contains information about army pensioners, including their height, place of birth, ethnicity, religion, education and occupation. What the authors want to emphasize here is that social networks matter in the analysis and they use the surnames to determine which network, and thus social class, people belong to. How well one does both in childhood and on the labor market is determined by networks, they hypothesize. And indeed their empirical analysis shows that while height and labor market outcomes are linked, childhood circumstances and labor market outcomes are not. The story is thus not as simple as previously thought ...

The report shows that while working-age adults in Appalachia are nearly as likely to have completed high school as Americans in general, they are significantly less likely to have completed at least four years of college. Just over 25 percent of Appalachias working-age population had a four-year degree or more in 2013-2017-seven percentage points lower than the U.S. average of 32 percent. And the rate was less than 20 percent in both Central Appalachia and the Regions most rural counties.. Nearly three-fourths (73 percent) of Appalachias prime working-age adults were in the labor force in 2013-2017, which is almost five percentage points lower than in the United States as a whole. But this share was much lower in 53 counties (38 of which were in Central Appalachia) where less than 60 percent of adults ages 25 to 64 were in the labor force.. Not surprisingly, those counties with lower labor force participation rates also had lower levels of educational attainment, Jacobsen says.. Although ...

The Perceptions of Good Jobs study has been conducted in order to better understand and explain how jobs are perceived in a number of selected countries. The report is primarily targeted to provide inputs towards the WDR 2013 and is part of a series of studies conducted on perceptions of good jobs in four countries: Colombia, China, Egypt and Sierra Leone. The main emphasis has been to explore the nature of jobs that affect living standards and enhance social cohesion. The report addresses the following research questions: What are the most important factors affecting labor force participation? What are the relations between jobs and household wealth? Can perceptions and stereotyping of jobs be regarded as constraints for job creation? What are the linkages between job benefits and job stability? What are the determinants of job satisfaction? Jobs can be evaluated using a human empowerment perspective by focusing on three features of a job: cognitive, creative and autonomous activities. What is
This paper discusses Jordans Sixth Review Under the Stand-By Arrangement, Request for Waivers of Applicability of Performance Criteria (PC), and Rephasing of Access. PC Program performance remains broadly on course. All end-March 2015 PCs are expected to be met. Structural performance saw improvement, including the pre-approval of a credit bureau and the establishment of a new public investment framework. There is an urgent need for broad-based policy actions in the labor market to put the unemployed into jobs, increase female labor force participation, and reform public-sector compensation and hiring practices. The IMF staff supports the completion of the sixth review and the related purchase.
This study is one of the most important in the world, said David Lam, director of the U-M Institute for Social Research, which oversees the study. It brings together scientists from a broad range of disciplines, and is a prime example of Michigans strength in interdisciplinary research and ISRs commitment to collaboration.. The longitudinal study surveys a representative sample of about 20,000 people in America over the age of 50 every two years. Using survey data, researchers then are able explore changes in labor force participation and health transitions people undergo toward the end of their work lives, and in the years that follow.. And with an additional $40 million in funding from the National Institute on Aging, researchers over the next three years plan to extend the scope and value of the study by increasing its sample population, collecting blood samples to study how aging impacts the immune system and focusing more attention on dementia.. The power of the HRS comes from ...
When the jobs left, so did the young people, many of them to Florida. Today, Puerto Rico has a 40 percent labor force participation rate, the lowest of any state or territory. This is not a sustainable number, and things are getting worse. To deal with this crisis, Congress passed legislation called PROMESA, which put austerity measures in place while creating the Puerto Rico Oversight Board to help authorities manage and restructure the debt.. Fine, but now more is required. This is a job for the U.S. military. The Army Corps of Engineers can rebuild the electric grid; theres enough work rebuilding roads and houses and buildings and bridges and businesses for the Army, Navy, Marines, even the Coast Guard. And only President Trump can make that happen.. He would benefit, and so would we. As crucial as this help would be to Puerto Rico, even bigger issues are at stake. Simply put, the United States is not united. Phrases such as white supremacy and Nazis have been taken out of mothballs. ...

Total fertility rate: The average number of children that would be born per woman if all women lived to the end of their child-bearing years and bore children according to a given fertility rate at each age. The total fertility rate is a more direct measure of the level of fertility than the crude birth rate, since it refers to births per woman. This indicator shows the potential for population growth in the country. High rates will also place some limits on the labor force participation rates for women.

Doctors Getting Rich With Fusion Surgery Debunked by Studies. This investigative report documented that the number of spinal fusions in U.S. hospitals rose to 413,000 a year between 2002 and 2008 and that the cost of these procedures was now at least $150 billion a year.. For some spine surgeons preferential financial support from hospitals and medical device manufactures appears to have allowed this unique group of individuals a continued opportunity of convincing their patients into having ill-advised surgical procedures not in their best interest. This opportunity of being able to achieve a financial bonanza has been described by some social observers a irresistible temptation.. The city of Minneapolis appears to have achieved the dubious distinction of being the primary site for the most multi-level instrumented spinal fusions in the U.S. How this came to be has reflected the pioneering work of Orthopedic Scoliosis/ Deformity surgeons John Moe, Robert Winter, and David Bradford in ...

This Friday marks the two-year anniversary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. One provision of health reform for which we see immediate and positive effects is the stipulation allowing young adults up to age 26 to stay on or join their parents employer-sponsored health insurance (ESI) policies.. The figure below compares changes in employment rates and health insurance rates for various age groups. Young adults did not fare well in the job market from 2009-10; their employment rate fell further than any other age group. Given the close relationship between labor market outcomes and employer-sponsored insurance, we would expect declines in coverage for all groups. Instead, ESI actually increased among young adults. It rose particularly dramatically among those who received health care coverage through a family members policy, most likely that of a parents.. ...
In recent years, employability has become an increasingly central concept in higher education, in no small part since it constitutes an important aspect of the Bologna Process. The project Teachers employability is a project carried out on behalf of the Faculty of Teacher Education at Umeå University - one of the major providers of teacher education in Sweden - and is a part of a broader university effort to evaluate and increase employability. The aim of the project is to examine the situation of the universitys student teachers after graduation, as well as to find out how the former students and their employers view their education.. The study is based on the longitudinal individual database ASTRID, questionnaires and interviews. This paper reports findings from the project, focusing on 1) employment situation, income development and mobility patterns of recent alumni (class of 2000) and 2) primary employers (school leaders) view of the quality and usefulness of the present teacher ...

Ontario employment in May showed stronger gains than Canada. Employment in Ontario increased by 21,600 jobs compared to 14,000 jobs across the country. Ontario gains in construction acted as the main driver. The construction industry added 24,600 jobs last month.. The fall in the unemployment rate was mixed news. The drop to 6.6 per cent from 7 per cent is in part due to strength in employment and to a fall in participation rates for youth and core aged workers.. While both these labour market indicators are moving in the right direction, they still have some way to go as month-to-month numbers continue to fluctuate and gains are not far ahead of the standard error.. The month of May also recorded increases in full-time employment of 40,100 jobs, adding almost double the lost jobs from last month. Part-time employment recorded 46,800 jobs lost.. The youth unemployment rate fell from 14.8 per cent to 13.6 per cent as the labour markets eased up for that group.. The goods-producing sector ...

Upon closer scrutiny though, there is another factor contributing to the drop that is not necessarily good news: The official size of the U.S. labor force is shrinking.. The Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes the Labor Force Participation Rate each month, along with a litany of other metrics that are used to give us the headline jobs number and the unemployment rate. The governments definition of the labor force is all individuals 16 years of age and older, who are employed or seeking employment. It does not include students; retirees; anyone with unreported income, or discouraged workers.. The participation rate is the comparison of the labor force, those looking for work or employed, and everyone else. That ratio is currently 64.2 percent seasonally adjusted, and 63.9 percent non-seasonally adjusted, the same level as last month. Both of those percentages are currently running at 27-year lows, meaning the percentage of Americans not working or even trying to join the work force is at ...

IEEE-USA encourages U.S. Sections (Regions 1-6) to launch their own Employment Networks. The purpose of these Networks is to provide more local networking opportunities and group support for IEEE members who are seeking employment opportunities. Employment Networks are taken from the Job Club concept, usually attributed to Dr. Nathan Azrin, a clinical psychologist who co-authored Job Club Counselors Manual: A Behavioral Approach to Vocational Counseling. Azrins manual provides instruction on how job seekers can work effectively in a group to assist one another with their job search campaigns.. IEEE-USA would like to expand this program -- which has demonstrated success in helping members find employment -- throughout the United States. Daryll Griffin, IEEE-USAs Program Manager for Career and Innovation Activities, is available to help IEEE Sections with their efforts to start Employment Networks. For more information, please contact Mr. Griffin at [email protected] or call +1 202 530 ...
In recent years, more than a few Americans in public life have spoken of a revolutionary gig economy that, through websites and smart-phone apps, is providing new types of work opportunities and new ways of linking consumers with service providers. Some say this new economy - dominated by firms like Uber, Lyft, and TaskRabbit - has produced positive effects, such as newly flexible work arrangements, increased innovation, increased self-employment, and a dominance of small employers. Others, however, say it has produced mostly negative ones: increased temporary employment, decreased job security, and less full-time work for many Americans.. Republican senator Marco Rubio of Florida - until recently, a presidential candidate - declared in October of last year that an important truth facing us in this election...is that the American economy is fundamentally transforming in the direction of new employer-employee relationships. The center-left Markle Foundation largely agrees. America is in the ...
