||Involuntary job loss as a risk factor for subsequent myocardial infarction and stroke: Findings from the health and retirement survey
||May 2004, Vol.45, No.5, p.408-416. 45 ref.
||The objective of this study was to estimate the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke associated with involuntary job loss among workers nearing retirement in the United States. Multivariable analysis was applied to data from the first four waves of the national Health and Retirement Survey (HRS). The sample included 457 workers who had experienced job loss and a comparison group of 3,763 employed individuals. The findings suggest that involuntary job loss should be considered as a plausible risk factor for subsequent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular illness among older workers.
