The set of parameters ␤ reﬂect the impact of changes in X on the probability. 3. We show the probit coeﬃcients and marginal eﬀect, which indicates the probability magnitude of the eﬀect of each variable. All the variables except education attainment and work-related education/training are statistically signiﬁcant, and all parameter signs are consistent with those predicted. The function shows that as a person gets older, his/her labor participation probability is reduced. The probability magnitude shows that if a person has health problems, it will reduce the labor participation probability by 6 per cent.
