The labor participation of the elderly is an important level of labor supply in China, and healthy human capital is one of the main factors affecting the labor participation of the elderly. Based on the data of the Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS) in 2014, this paper uses the Probit model to empirically analyze the impact of the healthy human capital of the elderly in China on their labor force participation rate. The results show that when individual characteristic variables, family characteristic variables and social characteristic variables are added, healthy human capital is positively correlated with labor participation of retired elderly people. The better health status is, the higher labor participation rate is. With the decline in health status, the labor force participation rate of retired elderly people decreased significantly. The influence of healthy human capital on labor participation of the elderly in China is also heterogeneous between urban and rural areas, gender and age, among which the influence of healthy human capital on labor participation of the elderly in rural areas, males and young age groups is higher than that in urban areas, females and elderly retirees.
