This book provides an introduction and overview to seven applied financial studies on the theme of labour. The studies cover a wide range of topics, from the individual effects of becoming disabled on key aspects of labour market outcomes in Germany, to testing whether there is evidence of compression of morbidity using Health and Retirement Study (HRS) data and analysing the effects of this on the labour supply of older people. The studies employ a variety of applied techniques across a range of countries. This book was originally published as a special issue of Applied Economics.
