This chapter examines long-run trends in the takeup of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). It shows that health (as measured by mortality and self-assessed health) seems to have little relationship to any observed trend in the SSDI program. In contrast, legislative and administrative changes such as benefit formulas, screening rules, and eligibility criteria, as well as labor market trends such as the increasing employment of women, affect long-run trends in SSDI recipiency.

Keywords:   SSDI, mortality, self-assessed health, labor market
