Item description for Effects of Regulation on Disability Duration (ICS) by Anne Geerte Van De Goor & Anne-Geerte van de Goor...

For years the large number of people participating in the Dutch Disability Insurance Act (WAO) has been subject of political debate and scientific investigation. To reduce the WAO volume the government has reformed disability regulations several times. This book studies when and why employees leave the WAO and how this is affected by changes in regulations. Four questions are central to the approach in this book. Which WAO participants are more likely to decide to reenter the labour market and search for a job? Which of these job-searchers are more likely to be hired by employers? How do WAO administrators decide on the residual earning capacity of WAO participants? And, how do changes in regulations affect these three decisions?

Reviews - What do customers think about Effects of Regulation on Disability Duration (ICS)?

The courage to say what we know . . . and what we don't know  Jul 21, 2000
The Dutch Disability Insurance Act (WAO) is an infamous Dutch social policy instrument aimed at providing compensation for those who experience a reduction in earning capacity because of disability. The growing volume of people in the WAO, among other things because it was a convenient way to get rid of superfluous employees at little cost, was and still is a major concern for the Dutch government and for social scientists like the author.

The book consists of two parts. An overview of the history of WAO regulation and a careful inquiry into the conditions that affect the likelihood of exit from the WAO. The overview of the history of the Disability Act is interesting in its own right. It brings across an image of a government struggling to reverse a development that should have been dealt with at a much earlier stage. Any government, even the Dutch, can learn from viewing the process of mistakes and quasi-solutions that are painstakingly collected by the author.

The explanatory part addresses several questions, all of which have to do with the factors attributing to being able to leave the WAO once you're in. That this question is an important one is convincingly shown using a multitude of figures. Heart of the matter is: when you're in, you're stuck. In fact, when you're a woman and you're in, you're certainly stuck. The author meticulously pinpoints all possible factors attributing to this process, thereby exhibiting the nature of the true scientist. Sometimes you learn something, sometimes you don't, and the author is honest enough to acknowledge not only her victories, but also the occurences where the cold facts slay a carefully deduced hypothesis.

This is a carefully written book on governmental policy and the way in which it affects the decisions of people, of interest for those who want to more about the Dutch social security system, for social scientists interested in regulation issues, and for anyone who wants to see a proficient social scientist at work, trying to make sense out of the messy world around us.
