Problems of Economic Transition, 2010, vol. 53, issue 1, 5-16

Abstract: The article analyzes retraining programs provided by public employment offices in Russia with an emphasis on their potential role during economic crisis. Net impacts of the programs are estimated using a rigorous quasi-experimental evaluation technique. It was found that the impact of retraining the unemployed is statistically insignificant both for wages and employment. Neither a positive nor a negative overall effect of the programs was found.
