Programme evaluation and treatment choice by Markus Frölich ( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Policy evaluation and programme choice are important tools for informed decision-making, for the administration of active labour market programmes, training programmes, tuition subsidies, rehabilitation programmes etc. Whereas the evaluation of programmes and policies is mainly concerned with an overall assessment of impact, benefits and costs, programme choice considers an optimal allocation of individuals to the programmes. This book surveys potential evaluation strategies for policies with multiple programmes and discusses evaluation and treatment choice in a coherent framework. Recommendations for choosing appropriate evaluation estimators are derived. Furthermore, a semiparametric estimator of optimal treatment choice is developed to assist in the optimal allocation of participants

Quantile treatment effects in the regression discontinuity design by Markus Frölich ( )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and German and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper shows nonparametric identification of quantile treatment effects (QTE) in the regression discontinuity design. The distributional impacts of social programs such as welfare, education, training programs and unemployment insurance are of large interest to economists. QTE are an intuitive tool to characterize the effects of these interventions on the outcome distribution. We propose uniformly consistent estimators for both potential outcome distributions (treated and non-treated) for the population of interest as well as other function-valued effects of the policy including in particular the QTE process. The estimators are straightforward to implement and attain the optimal rate of convergence for one-dimensional nonparametric regression. We apply the proposed estimators to estimate the effects of summer school on the distribution of school grades, complementing the results of Jacob and Lefgren (2004). -- Quantile treatment effect ; causal effect ; endogeneity ; regression discontinuity
A caseworker like me: does the similarity between unemployed and caseworker increase job placements? by Stefanie Behncke ( )

Immigration and heterogeneous labor in Western Germany : a labor market classification based on nonparametric estimation by Markus Frölich ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and German and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper presents a methodology to identify net demand shocks as well as wage rigidities in heterogeneous labor markets on the basis of nonparametric regression. We show how this approach can be used to make suggestions for immigration policy in economies with labor market rigidities. In an application to western Germany it is demonstrated that nonparametric regression is feasible in higher dimensions with only a few thousand observations. In sum, labor markets able to absorb immigrants are characterized by above average age and by professional occupations. On the other hand, labor markets for young workers in service occupations are identified to exhibit rising unemployment due to wage rigidities and are therefore not recommended for immigration
Peer effects and textbooks in primary education : evidence from francophone sub-Saharan Africa by Markus Frölich ( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As opposed to many other school inputs, textbooks have frequently been demonstrated to significantly foster student achievement. Using the rich data set provided by the 'Program on the Analysis of Education Systems' (PASEC) for five francophone, sub-Saharan African countries, this paper goes beyond the estimation of direct effects of textbooks on students' learning and focuses on peer effects resulting from textbooks owned by students' classmates. Applying and extending nonparametric estimation methods from the treatment evaluation literature we separate the direct effect of textbooks from their peer effect. The latter clearly dominates but depends upon the initial level of textbook availability
Teacher shortages, teacher contracts and their impact on education in Africa by Jean Bourdon ( )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Primary school enrolment rates are very low in francophone Africa. In order to enhance education supply, many countries have launched large teacher recruitment programmes in recent years, whereby teachers are no longer engaged on civil servant positions, but on the basis of (fixed-term) contracts typically implying considerably lower salaries and a sharply reduced duration of professional training. While this policy has led to a boost of primary enrolment, there is a concern about a loss in the quality of education. In this paper we analyse the impact on educational quality, by estimating nonparametrically the quantile treatment effects for Niger, Togo and Mali, based on very informative data, comparable across these countries. We find that contract teachers do relatively better for low ability children in low grades than for high ability children in higher grades. When positive treatment effects were found, they tended to be more positive at the low to medium quantiles; when negative effects were found they tended to be more pronounced at the high ability quantiles. Hence, overall it seems that contract teachers do a relatively better job for teaching students with learning difficulties than for teaching the "more advanced" children. This implies that contract teachers tend to reduce inequalities in student outcomes
Exploiting regional treatment intensity for the evaluation of labour market policies by Markus Frölich ( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We estimate the effects of active labour market policies (ALMP) on subsequent employment by nonparametric instrumental variables and matching estimators. Very informative administrative Swiss data with detailed regional information are combined with exogenous regional variation in programme participation probabilities, which generate an instrument within well-defined local labour markets. This allows pursuing instrumental variable as well as matching estimation strategies. A specific combination of those methods identifies a new type of effect heterogeneity. We find that ALMP increases individual employment probabilities by about 15% in the short term for unemployed that may be called 'marginal' participants. The effects seem to be considerably smaller for those unemployed not marginal to the participation decision. -- local average treatment effect ; conditional local IV ; active labour market policy ; state borders ; geographic variation ; Switzerland ; Fuller estimator

Unemployed and their caseworkers should they be friends or foes? by Stefanie Behncke ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In many countries, caseworkers in a public employment office have the dual roles of counselling and monitoring unemployed persons. These roles often conflict with each other leading to important caseworker heterogeneity: Some consider providing services to their clients and satisfying their demands as their primary task. Others may however pursue their strategies even against the will of the unemployed person. They may assign job assignments and labour market programmes without consent of the unemployed person. Based on a very detailed linked jobseeker-caseworker dataset, we investigate the effects of caseworkers' cooperativeness on the employment probabilities of their clients. Modified statistical matching methods reveal that caseworkers who place less emphasis on a cooperative and harmonic relationship with their clients increase their employment chances in the short and medium term"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
