Employment Modelling In Slovakia: Comparing Logit Models In 2005 And 2009
AbstractIn this paper we present models based on a statistical modelling approach that explain the effects of selected variables on employment in Slovakia in the years 2005 and 2009. The probability of becoming employed (employability/odds ratio) was based on individual data from the harmonized EU SILC statistical survey with some socio-economic factors. For quantification of the mentioned variables’ impact on the dependent variable (employment) logistic regression was applied. The results confirmed a positive effect of work experience and the highest level of education attained on employability. Conversely, in some cases age showed a negative effect on the dependent variable, and to some extent gender also had a significant effect. In terms of region, a lower chance of becoming employed was found for inhabitants in Eastern Slovakia when compared to other regions.
