  • N=2927. All four measures of intentions to reduce work participation are measured on a 5-point scale, 1=’none’ to 5=’high’. Columns 4 and 5 are coefficients from linear regressions with heteroscedasticity-robust standard errors. Adjusted differences control for gender and age category interactions, ethnicity, partner status, and practice deprivation and urbanicity.
