Health and Limitations in Health as the Determinant of Human Capital Effectiveness : Perspective of the EU Member States
The purpose of the present article is to indicate and assess the significance of health in the creation of human capital effectiveness. The conducted review was based on the chief theoretical conceptions that describe the impact of health on human capital effectiveness. In the empirical part of the attempt to define the relationship between health, in particular its absence, and the efficiency of human capital measured by human capital indicators (employment) and human capital management quality (income). An assessment was made of the diversification level of the individual variables that describe human capital effectiveness. Unemployment rates and poverty risks were compared between those with health problems and those who are not suffering from health problems, in select EU economies. (original abstract)
