How do different entitlements to unemployment benefits affect the transitions from unemployment into employment?

John Addison () and Pedro Portugal

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 101, issue 3, 206-209

Abstract: In Portugal duration of benefits is exclusively age determined while replacement rates are essentially uniform. We exploit differences in potential maximum duration of benefits for nearly matched pairs of individuals to determine the effects of benefit duration on job finding.
