Card, David and Alan Kruger. To anticipate future problems, Seltzer emphasized that not only are some variables inevitably theoretically ambiguous a low-wage worker may rationally support or oppose minimum wage increases depending on whether job loss is expectedbut also the coefficients on some variables must be interpreted cautiously.
More recently, Seltzer explored support in both the House and Senate for the introduction of the federal minimum wage law. In the last few years, prompted largely by the work of Card and Krugernumerous Health literature reviews on the employment effects of minimum wage legislation have appeared.
The report, which was prepared by Peter J. What factors determine the minimum wage? Cubans, Dominicans, Mexicans and Puerto Ricans, summarizes and analyzes professional literature surrounding studies on barriers to care, utilization of mental health services, and clinical best practices.
For example, should the coefficient for a variable measuring teen workers in the labor force be interpreted as their demand for higher wages, or does the coefficient better reflect the demands of well-organized firms that disproportionally hire younger workers? One reason may be that in the U.
To date, only one He found variables representing small business and low-wage workers decreased support for the bill, while ideology liberals for, conservatives against was also important. This model was tested with ordinary least squares for a pooled sample covering nine provinces for the years towith no fixed effects for provinces or years.
Despite the ubiquity of minimum wage legislation, this question has received surprisingly little attention. Now, you too can know more about issues such as these and others facing Hispanics regarding mental health utilization, barriers, clinical best practices and recommendations for future endeavors, thanks to a report available from the National Resource Center.
Statistics Canada Catalogue E Winter They related the minimum wage, measured as the minimum wage divided by the average manufacturing wage, to the percentages of union workers, women, and 15 to year-olds in the labor force, the current year unemployment rate, the inflation rate, the percentage of employment in small firms less than 20 employeesand a "convergence" variable that measures average manufacturing wages in a province divided by average wages in Canada.
Please note that the report is protected by U. To obtain a free copy of the report, please click on the link below. Since this federal wage changes only occasionally, most U.
Using variables for each congressional district, they found larger political contributions by unions and larger proportions of low-income families increased the probability of an affirmative vote, while larger campaign contributions from small business and larger proportions of teen-age workers reduced the probability.
The report also provides an historical overview of each group and discusses issues relevant to each group that may contribute to the views of mental health by members of that group. Since the Canadian minimum wage is under provincial, not federal jurisdiction, there has been substantial variation in the level and timing of changes in the wage across provinces, thus providing the opportunity to explore a relatively rich panel data set.
Gaps in research areas and service delivery are also identified and provided, as are recommendations for future endeavors by those interested in addressing the lack of access to and the quality of mental heath services for Hispanics. This renewed interest in how minimum wages affect employment leads naturally to another question: For each year he found only the union variable increased the probability of an in-favor vote - and only for Republicans, since Democrats almost universally support minimum wage increases.
In contrast to the U. Princeton University Press, All variables had negative coefficients that were significant at the 5 percent level, except for the union variable which was, unexpectedly, negative and insignificant The report provides a summary of key findings from national studies with Hispanics and a summary of key findings from the comprehensive literature review and analysis.

Currency. A literature review provides an overview of what's been written about a specific topic. There are many different types of literature reviews.
They vary in terms of comprehensiveness, types of study included, and purpose. Evidence-based information on Literature reviews from hundreds of trustworthy sources for health and social care. Make better, quicker, evidence based decisions.
Evidence search provides access to selected and authoritative evidence in. This type of literature review is primarily applied to examining prior research studies in clinical medicine and allied health fields, but it is increasingly being used in the social sciences.
