Abstract:
The aim of this paper is to explore alternative methodologies to obtain estimates of the labour force participation effects of the health and education variables targeted by the National Reform Agendy (NRA).

This paper’s main contribution to the understanding of the effects of health and education on labour force participation is twofold:
- Through the use of an integrated model of labour force participation, all relevant effects are estimated simultaneously in a consistent framework, thus making comparisons and interpretation of these effects easier.
- It investigates the possibility that various types of bias may affect the relationships of interest.
