Abstract

El artículo analiza el efecto del programa de formación público del Instituto Nacional de Empleo (INEM) para trabajadores desempleados sobre las perspectivas de empleo. Dos grupos de desempleados españoles son comparados entre abril de 2000 y febrero de 2001, uno de ellos participó en los cursos de formación en el primer trimestre de 2000. Se utiliza metodología de emparejamiento con probabilidad de participación para evaluar el efecto causal de los cursos de formación en la duración del desempleo. Las estimaciones sugieren que los cursos de nivel medio redujeron más la duración del desempleo que los de otros niveles. Las mujeres formadas reducen más el periodo de desempleo que los hombres formados, aunque las diferencias no son suficientemente grandes para reducir las desigualdades de género en el mercado de trabajo de forma significativa.
