Training the East German Labour Force. Microeconometric Evaluations of Continuous Vocational Training after Unification

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
Not available in German. After unification the public and private sector spent large amounts of money to retrain the East German labour force in order to ease the transition to the new market economy. Using individual longitudinal and cross sectional data, this book proposes microeconometric methods to evaluate the impact of these training programmes on the participants' situation in the labour market. The contributions concern the issue of how such evaluations could and should be performed as well as the effectiveness of the actual programmes. The empirical findings suggest that the public sector sponsored training programmes were fairly ineffective for the individual participants with respect to their unemployment risk as well as other labour market indicators. In contrast, the training organized and paid by the enterprises caused considerable earnings growth. 1998. X, 204 pp. 73 figs., 29 tabs.
