Employment, Mobility, and Active Labor Market Programs

Peter Fredriksson and Per Johansson ()

No 2003:5, Working Paper Series from Uppsala University, Department of Economics

Abstract: Using a unique micro panel data set we investigate whether active labor market programs improve employment prospects and increase mobility in the longer run. We consider two prototype programs: job creation programs and training programs. We find that both programs reduce the chances of finding a job substantially. Moreover, both programs are associated with a locking-in e.ect: the probability of finding a job outside the home region decreases after program participation. However, this e.ect appears to stem exclusively from the decrease in the overall job finding rate.
