Worklife by Occupation Physical Requirements

Daniel Baquet, Matthew J. Cushing, and David I. Rosenbaum. 2017. Worklife by Occupation Physical Requirements. Journal of Legal Economics 23(2): pp. 1–29.
Do workers in more physically demanding jobs have different worklives than those in more sedentary occupations? To answer this question, we link individual data from the Current Population Survey with occupation data from the Occupational Information Network. Individuals are categorized into more physically demanding and less physically demanding occupations. Analysis shows that even when controlling for sex, age and education, there is a significant difference in worklife between the two occupation groups. However, these results are in the realm of basic research and may not be applicable at this time for economic loss cases.
