Evaluation of Active Labour-market Measures for Persons with Health Problems or Disabilities

Unemployment of people with health problems or disabilities is rising disproportionally. In light of the ageing of the labour force, this trend is likely to continue over the next years. The research project will give a quantitative assessment of the number of workers with poor health conditions. On this basis, an evaluation of impacts of active labour-market measures for this particular group will be carried out. This analysis will provide insights for the future design and improvement of measures to facilitate the reintegration of this target-group into the labour market.
