A microeconometric evaluation of rehabilitation of long-term sickness in Sweden

abstract In this study the effects of various types of rehabilitation programmes on labour market out-comes are estimated. A main feature of this study is that it jointly evaluates multiple treat-ments by nonparametric matching estimators. The study is based on a large sample of per-sons in western Sweden who are long-term sick and could participate in rehabilitation pro-grammes. Our results suggest that work-place training is superior to the other rehabilitation programmes with respect to labour market outcomes, but compared to non-participation no positive effects are found.
