Effects of Kidney Transplantation on Labor Market Outcomes in Sweden.
Jarl J, Gerdtham U-G, Desatnik P, Prütz K-G.
Transplantation
. 2018;102:1375-1381.

While accepted as a cost-efficient intervention, there is little known about kidney transplantation and its wider effects, such as labor market outcomes. Utilizing national data from Sweden and controlling for treatment selection bias, Jarl and colleagues demonstrate that transplant recipients are 21 percentage points more likely to be working than those on dialysis. Five-year results suggest that effects are even more pronounced over time, mainly due to continued decline of health while on dialysis. Understanding the downstream effects of kidney transplantation will help to quantify the true value of increasing the supply of donated kidneys.
