This study presents three complementary approaches exploring the main factors behind the steep decline in the participation rate of Israeli men in the past three decades. Two factors stand out in explaining the decline in participation rate: increases in the share of Orthodox Jews along with stronger dissociation of that group from the labor market and unfavorable labor market conditions for poorly educated people and especially for persons with disabilities.
