Applied Economics Letters, 2007, vol. 14, issue 15, 1119-1122

Abstract: Traditional approaches to measurement conditional probabilities of leaving welfare do not deal with unemployment benefits data in a proper way leading thus to biased estimates of unemployment-employment transition probabilities. In fact, these approaches overestimate hazard rates and hence underestimate the expected welfare duration.
