Labor Demography


Precarious Work, Life-Course Outcomes, and Health

Conducted by Mikko Myrskylä; Christian Dudel, Angelo Lorenti; in Collaboration with Jo Mhairi Hale (University of St. Andrews, United Kingdom)

We unravel the mechanisms and trajectories through which individuals find themselves in precarious work, non-standard employment, and working poverty. Moreover, we assess how these employment arrangements give rise to, shape, and affect inequalities; particularly inequalities in health.Detailed description
