Abstract

We evaluate the impact of a mandatory quota of workers with disabilities using a sharp regression discontinuity design. We use data from a panel of Spanish firms where there is a mandatory quota of 2 per cent for firms with 50 or more workers. Non-parametric estimations show that strictly beyond the cut off of 50 workers there is an increase of 1.4 points in the percentage of workers with disabilities in the firm, just fulfilling the quota of 2 per cent. However, this effect has some lack of precision. In addition, for larger firm’s sizes the variation in the percentage of workers with disabilities will be more related with differences in firms’ characteristics.
