Abstract [en]

In this study we address the relationship of self-reported reservation wages(RW)(the lowest offered income at which an unemployed persona will accept a job offer), the income replacement rate of unemployment benefit (IRUB) and psychosocial need for employment with job search intensity and reemployment probabilities among unemployed in Sweden in 1996-1997. The results indicate that the RWs reported by the group that we observe over timewere relatively stable, but strongly related to IRUB and both the gender and age of the unemployed individuals. Interestingly, IRUB was related to search intensity, but not reemployment probabilities, while the RW was related to reemployment probabilities but not search intensity. These findings suggest that IRUB might be a poor proxy for RWs, in some situations at least. In sharp contrast, psychosocial incentives appeared to be related to both search intensity and reemployment probabilities, indicating a need for a richerunderstanding of search behaviour and unemployment durations. The data also indicate that the rolesof search behaviour and incentives for reemployment probabilitiesmay be exaggeratedwhich, at least under the relatively depressed labour market conditions our data represented, appeared to be much more strongly related to human capital and demand for labourfor our study population
