Employment effects of service offshoring: Evidence from matched firms

Contents:

Author Info

  • Crinò, Rosario

Abstract

This paper studies the effects of service offshoring on the level and skill composition of domestic employment, using a rich data set of Italian firms and propensity score matching techniques. The results show that service offshoring has no effect on the level of employment but changes its composition in favor of high skilled workers.
