Exiting unemployment: How do program effects depend on individual coping strategies?

Signe Andersen ()

Journal of Economic Psychology, 2011, vol. 32, issue 2, 248-258

Abstract: This paper analyses if individual coping strategies explain heterogeneous effects of participation in active labour market programs (ALMPs) on reemployment probabilities for the unemployed. I use survey data linked with administrative data from Statistics Denmark and focus on respondents who are unemployed or participating in ALMPs (n = 1310). To account for selection bias I analyse the data with a mixed logit model. I find that the coping strategies displayed by the unemployed persons explain heterogeneous effects of participation in ALMPs.
