Regression-based approaches for the decomposition of income inequality in Italy, 1998-2008
AbstractBecause of the high unemployment rate and the low chances to get a permanent job, young people in Italy face major problems in entering the labour market. In this paper, we address the issue of the labour market entry of young Italian workers by using a sample dataset of the new Compulsory Communication data for the period 2008 - 2010. We ask whether there are some individual characteristics which are more favourable for openended contracts. Then, we analyse how different types of temporary jobs have different probability of transforming into permanent ones. Finally, we estimate a survival model on the duration of temporary jobs.
