From the abstract:
This paper reviews the recent economic research on the relationship between health insurance and labor markets in the United States, with an emphasis on research that has emerged since existing major reviews and the aim of identifying the types of data that are needed for this research to progress. We focus on the conceptual and empirical challenges that researchers face in studying these relationships, the data that have allowed this research to proceed, policy-relevant questions that need further study, and the types of data that would help in obtaining better answers to these questions.
