L'impact causal de la santé mentale sur le maintien en emploi quatre ans plus tard

Abstract : Our objective is to measure the causal impact of the self-rated mental health state of 2006 (anxiety disorders and depressive episodes) on employment in 2010. We use data from the French Health and Professional Route Survey (Sip, "Santé et Itinéraire Professionnel"). In order to control the endogeneity bias coming from the mental health indicator, we use a bivariate Probit modelization, explaining employment status in a first model and instrumented mental health in a second one. Furthermore we control these results by observing the individual, employment, physical health, risky behaviors and professional biography characteristics. Our main findings are as follow: men suffering from depression or anxiety are more numerous to be out of employment than the others. We do not find such a relationship for women. The robustness checks conducted - and specifically those taking account from the 2007-2010 period - confirm these results
