Notes
  • This paper uses Currenc Populacion Survey daca on a large sample of workers to escimace the decerminancs of parcicipacion in scace workers' compensacion programs in che United Staces. The principal finding is Chat higher workers' compensation benefits are associaced with greater parcicipacion in the workers' compensation program, after accounting for worker characceriscics, state fixed effects, and other aspects of the workers' compensation law. Moreover, this result holds for both manufacturing and nonmanufacturing workers. Workers' compensacion benefits, however, have an insignificanc effecc on program parcicipation for the sample of women. Overall, a 10% increase in benefits is associaced with a 6.7% increase in program participacion. In addicion, the results show that the waiting period that is required before benefit paymencs begin has a substantial negative effect on parcicipacion in the workers' compensation program. Finally, the parameters of the cross-seccional model are used to simulate the aggregate workers' compensation incidence rate from 1969 to 1987. The growth in workers' compensation claims in the 1970s appears to correspond reasonably well co the growth in real benefits that occurred during this time period.
