The effect of receiving supplementary UI benefits on unemployment duration by Tomi Kyyrä( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We consider the consequences of working part-time on supplementary unemployment insurance benefits in the Danish labour market. Following the "timing-of-events" approach we estimate causal effects of subsidized part-time work on the hazard rate out of unemployment insurance benefit receipt. We find evidence of a negative lock-in effect and a positive post-treatment effect, both of which vary across individuals. The resulting net effect on the expected unemployment duration is positive for some groups (e.g. married women) and negative for others (e.g. young workers). -- Unemployment benefits ; part-time work ; lock-in effect ; treatment effect ; duration analysis
The times they are a-changin' organizational change and immigrant employment opportunities in Scandinavia by Michael Rosholm( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article compares and contrasts male immigrant labor market experiences in Sweden and Denmark during the period 1985 - 1995. Using register-based panel data sets from Sweden and Denmark, a picture of the employment assimilation process of immigrants from Norway, Poland, Turkey, and Iran is brought forth. The comparative approach shows that immigrants in Sweden and Denmark experienced similar declines in employment prospects between 1985 and 1995 despite quite different developments of aggregate labor market conditions. The explanation offered here is that the changing organizational structure - towards more flexible work organization - has resulted in a decrease in the attractiveness of immigrant employees due to the increasing importance of country-specific skills and informal human capital
The Relative Efficiency of Active Labour Market Policies: Evidence from a Social Experiment and Non-Parametric Methods by Johan Vikström( )

5 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We re-analyze the effects of a Danish active labour market program social experiment that included a range of sub-treatments, including monitoring, job search assistance and training. Previous studies have shown that the overall effect of the experiment is positive. We apply newly developed non-parametric methods to determine which of the individual policies that explains the positive effect. The use of non-parametric methods to separate sub-treatment effects is important from a methodological point of view, since the alternative, namely parametric/distributional assumptions, is in conflict with the concept of experimental evidence. Our results are highly relevant in a policy perspective, as optimal labour market policy design requires knowledge on the effectiveness of specific policy measures. -- active labour market policy ; treatment effect ; non-parametric bounds
The Impact of Active Labour Market Policy on Post-Unemployment Outcomes: Evidence from a Social Experiment in Denmark by Sylvie Blasco( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While job search theory predicts that active labour market policies (ALMPs) can affect post-unemployment outcomes, empirical evaluations investigating transition rates have mostly focused on the impact of ALMPs on exit rates from the current unemployment spell. We use a social experiment, which was conducted in Denmark in 2005-6, to investigate the effects of a dramatic intensification of ALMPs on reemployment stability. We investigate the nature of this impact. We estimate a duration model with lagged duration dependence to separately identify "indirect" (via shorter unemployment duration) and "direct" (through a more efficient matching process) effects of ALMPs on subsequent employment duration. We find that overall intensive activation significantly reduces unemployment recurrence for men, but not for women. When we control for dynamic selection into employment and lagged duration dependence, the positive impact of the treatment becomes smaller but remains significant. 80% of the global impact of intensification acts through the direct channel for men. -- social experiment ; labour market policy regime ; treatment effect ; post-unemployment outcome ; duration model ; lagged duration dependence ; dynamic selection
The Effects of Active Labour Market Policies for Immigrants Receiving Social Assistance in Denmark by Eskil Heinesen( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We estimate the effect of active labour market programmes on the exit rate to regular employment for non-western immigrants in Denmark who receive social assistance. We use the timing-of-events duration model and rich administrative data. We find large positive post-programme effects, and, surprisingly, even most in-programme effects are positive. The effects are largest for subsidized employment programmes, but effects are also large and significant for direct employment programmes and other programmes. The effects are larger if programmes begin after six months of unemployment. Implications of our estimates are illustrated by calculating effects on the duration to regular employment over a five-year period. -- programme evaluation ; duration analysis ; timing-of-events model
Chicken or Checkin'? Rational Learning in Repeated Chess Games by Christer Gerdes( )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine rational learning among expert chess players and how they update their beliefs in repeated games with the same opponent. We present a model that explains how equilibrium play is affected when players change their choice of strategy when receiving additional information from each encounter. We employ a large international panel dataset with controls for risk preferences and playing skills whereby the latter accounts for ability. Although expert chess players are intelligent, productive and equipped with adequate data and specialized computer programs, we find large learning effects. Moreover, as predicted by the model, risk-averse players learn substantially faster. -- rational learning ; risk aversion ; beliefs
The effect of integration policies on the time until regular employment of newly arrived immigrants: evidence from Denmark( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We analyse the effect of active labour-market programmes on the hazard rate into regular employment for newly arrived immigrants using the timing-of-events duration model. We take account of language course participation and progression in destination country language skills. We use rich administrative data from Denmark. We find substantial lock-in effects of participation in active labour-market programmes. Post programme effects on the hazard rate to regular employment are significantly positive for wage subsidy programmes, but not for other types of programmes. For language course participants, improvement in language proficiency has significant and substantial positive effects on the hazard rate to employment. -- Programme evaluation ; duration analysis ; language skills
Unemployment and minimum wages : a microeconometric analysis by Peter Jensen( Book )

Estimating equilibrium effects of job search assistance( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Randomized experiments provide policy relevant treatment effects if there are no spillovers between participants and nonparticipants. We show that this assumption is violated for a Danish activation program for unemployed workers. Using a difference-in-difference model we show that the nonparticipants in the experiment regions find jobs slower after the introduction of the activation program (relative to workers in other regions). We then estimate an equilibrium search model. This model shows that a large scale role out of the activation program decreases welfare, while a standard partial microeconometric cost-benefit analysis would conclude the opposite
Looking beyond the bridge : how temporary agency employment affects labor market outcomes by Elke J Jahn( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We perform a comprehensive analysis of the stepping-stone effect of temporary agency employment on unemployed workers. Using the timing-of-events approach, we not only investigate whether agency employment is a bridge into regular em-ployment but also analyze its effect on post-unemployment wages and job stability for unemployed Danish workers. We find evidence of large positive treatment ef-fects, particularly for immigrants. There is also some indication that higher treatment intensity increases the likelihood of leaving unemployment for regular jobs. Our re-sults show that agency employment is even more effective in tight labor markets, where firms use agency employment primarily to screen potential candidates for permanent posts. Finally, our results suggest that agency employment may improve subsequent match quality in terms of wages and job duration. -- temporary agency employment ; stepping stone ; employment stability ; wages ; Denmark

Estimating the threat effect of active labour market programmes( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We combine two techniques to consistently estimate the effect of active labour market programmes and, in particular, active labour market policy regimes. Our aim is to explicitly estimate the threat effect of active labour market programmes. Based on Danish data (1998- 2002) from administrative registers we find a strong and significantly positive threat effect. The threat effect is shown to reduce average unemployment duration by approximately three weeks. The implications of this result are discussed
A Danish profiling system( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We describe the statistical model used for profiling new unemployed workers in Denmark. When a worker during his or her first six months in unemployment enters the employment office for the first time, this model predicts whether he or she will be unemployed for more than six months from that date or not. The case workers' assessment of how to treat the person is partially based upon this prediction

Home ownership, job duration, and wages( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We investigate the impact of home ownership on individual job mobility and wages in Denmark. We find that home ownership has a negative impact on job-to-job mobility both in terms of transition into new local jobs and new jobs outside the local labour market. In addition, there is a clear negative effect of home ownership on the unemployment risk and a positive impact on wages. These results are robust to different strategies for correcting for the possible endogeneity of the home owner variable. -- home ownership ; job mobility ; duration model

Experimental evidence on the effects of early meetings and activation by Jonas Maibom Pedersen( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We analyze the effects of four randomized social experiments, involving early and intensive active labour market policy, conducted in Denmark in 2008. The experiments entailed different combinations of early and intensive treatment in terms of meetings and active labour market programmes. The effects are remarkable; frequent meetings between newly unemployed workers and case workers can increase employment rates over the next two years by up to 5 weeks, corresponding to 10%. For men, we find evidence of a threat effect of having to participate in early active labour market programmes, while no such effect is found for women. In general, we find large differences between men and women, especially in the exact timing of the effects. We conduct a cost-benefit analysis of each of the four experiments and find that meetings yield the largest net benefits
