Vignettes and self-reports of work disability in the US and the Netherlands

The paper puts forth a new approach to the measurement of work disability. We utilize a vignette methodology to evaluate how people within and across countries set thresholds that result in labeling some people work disabled while other people are not so described. Our vignette questions ask respondents to evaluate on the same scale on which they evaluate themselves the severity of work disability problems of hypothetical scenarios and people.
