Labour market programmes and geographical mobility: Migration and commuting among programme participants and openly unemployed
2003 (English)Report (Other academic)
We study migration and commuting among participants in labour market pro- grammes and individuals in open unemployment. Post-programme mobility of par- ticipants in Employment Training, which is a supply-orientated program, is com- pared to the mobility of individuals participating in two demand-orientated pro- grammes and the openly unemployed. The empirical results indicate higher geo- graphical mobility among participants in Employment Training as compared to par- ticipants in Relief Work and the Work Experience Scheme. Individuals participat- ing in Employment Training also have a higher probability of mobility than the openly unemployed. In this case, this is due to the relatively higher probability of commuting that predominates the relatively lower probability of migration. Hence, our results indicate that different labour market programmes are associated with different amounts of post-programme mobility. Moreover, using functional regional labour markets as the regional entity, we find interregional commuting to be rela- tively more important than migration as a means of geographical labour mobility.
