dc.description.abstractSelf-reported work disability is analyzed in the US, the UK and the Netherlands. Differentwordings of the questions lead to different work disability rates. But even if identical questionsare asked, cross-country differences remain substantial. Respondent evaluations of worklimitations of hypothetical persons described in vignettes are used to identify the extent towhich differences in self-reports between countries or socio-economic groups are due tosystematic variation in the response scales. Results suggest that more than half of thedifference between the rates of self-reported work disability in the US and the Netherlandscan be explained by response scale differences. A similar methodology is used to analyzethe reporting bias that arises if respondents justify being on disability benefits by overstatingtheir work limiting disabilities.en_US
