This study aims to answer the following research questions:
- What is the impact of air pollution on worker productivity and other labour outcomes (attendance, tardiness, and attrition)?
- What is the impact of climate conditions (temperature and humidity) on worker productivity and other labour outcomes?
- Is resilience to temperature and air pollution heterogeneous according to workers’ exposure to higher temperatures and pollution during childhood, age, gender, or workplace tenure?
- What role does worker health play in mediating the impacts of pollution and temperature on the productivity, absenteeism, and attrition of workers? There has been a positive response to this project from ex-bureaucrats at Labour Bureau and trade union members.
