The Impact of Non-profit Temping Agencies on Individual Labour Market Success in the West German State of Rhineland-Palatinate

Matthias Almus, Michael Lechner, Friedhelm Pfeiffer & Hannes Spengler

The paper presents an econometric evaluation of the effects of subsidised non-profit temporary employment agencies - a programme of the West German active labour market policy - on individual labour market outcomes. The empirical analysis is based on individual data from files for computer-assisted job brokering in Rhineland-Palatine. Econometric estimates based on matching methods suggest that the programme generated a statistically significant additional reintegration success of about 13 per cent points. Furthermore within the first four month after leaving the programme, the estimated effect was about half a month additional employment for the participants. frühere Versionen: Lechner, M., F.
