Do working hours affect health? Evidence from statutory workweek regulations in Germany

Ein Vortrag von Kamila Cygan-Rehm (Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 24. Oktober 2017
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

This study estimates the causal effect of working hours on health. We deal with the endogenous labor supply by exploiting exogenous variation in working hours from statutory workweek regulations in the German public sector. Using individual panel data, we run two-stage least squares regressions controlling for unobserved heterogeneity. We find adverse consequences of increased working hours for self-assessed health and the number of doctor visits. These effects are mainly driven by women and parents of minor children who generally face heavier constraints in organizing their workweek.
