During 2008 and 2009, IFAU implemented a randomised field experiment with private rehabilitation of long-term sick, in cooperation with the Swedish Social Insurance Agency and the Swedish Public Employment Service. In the experiment, 4 000 long-term sick individuals in need of work-oriented rehabilitation were randomised to private rehabilitation agents or to the ordinary rehabilitation provided by the Public Employment Service. In a previous study, the short-term labour market impacts were analysed, showing no large differences between participants in private or public rehabilitation. This project analyses the labour market returns to private rehabilitation in the longer run. We use data from Statistics Sweden.
