dc.description.abstractMajor events in the life of an elderly individual, such as retirement, a significant decrease inincome, death of the spouse, disability, and a move to a nursing home, may affect the mentalhealth status of the individual. For example, the individual may enter a prolonged depression.We investigate this using unique longitudinal panel data that track labor market behavior,health status, and major life events, over time. To deal with endogenous aspects of theseevents we apply fixed effects estimation methods. We find some strikingly large effects ofcertain events on the occurrence of depression. We show that the results are of importancefor the design of health care and labor market policy towards the elderly.en_US
