The project develops a dynamic microsimulation model for the USA to project age-specific labour force participation while accounting for population changes in education and health. The model produces projections that account for changes in cohorts' educational attainments and the dynamic effects of education on health and employment. A focus is on the projection of the labour market participation of persons with health limitations in various policy settings. The analysis is embedded in an internationally comparative framework. Our project adapts a multi-country comparative microsimulation model, which is currently being developed for five European countries, for the USA context. The creation of this model, combined with the analysis of participation behaviour of different socio-demographic groups and of the impact of different policies for the inclusion of persons with health impairments, allows to project labour force participation in the USA and to construct comparative what-if scenarios.
