Gosling, Amanda, Saloniki, Eirini-Christina (2014) Correction of misclassification error in disability rates. Health Economics, 23 (9). pp. 1084-1097. ISSN 1057-9230. E-ISSN 1099-1050. (doi:10.1002/hec.3080) (KAR id:56819)

Abstract

This paper examines misclassification error in survey estimates of disability. The results suggest that a significant number of those with a disability fail to be recorded as such in the British Household Panel Survey. In addition, the probability of a false positive is estimated as being very close to zero in all socio?demographic groups. There is a strong bias in estimates of differences in rates of disability across groups but only a small effect on estimates of the difference in employment rates by disability status.
