Housing Tenure and Job Search Behaviour. A Different Analysis of the Impact of the UK Jobseeker's Allowance

Abstract: This paper investigates the relation between job search effort and hous-ing tenure by focussing on the impact of the UK Jobseeker's Allowance reform introduced in the UK in 1996. Theory suggests that a tight-ening in job search requirements, as implied by this reform, raises movements off benefit of non-employed with low search intensity and this effect adjusts in size depending on the different housing tenure. Average Treatment Effect estimates confirm that the impact of the reform on the claimant outflow rate is related to housing tenure.
