Using the available cross-country data for Europe, this chapter provides novel evidence on the employment and labor market participation rates of underweight and overweight people as well as people belonging to different religious groups. In particular, it uses the International Social Survey Program (ISSP) to investigate the relationship between religion and labor-market outcomes, and the European Community Household Panel and the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions to study the relationship between obesity and labor-market outcomes. This chapter also discusses the labor market and anti-discrimination policies that have been implemented in the different European countries.
