Abstract

L'analyse de donnees administratives devenues disponibles recemment dans un certain nombre de pays a mene a la conclusion qu'une etude minutieuse de l'interaction entre les caracteristiques de l'employeur et celles des employes est necessaire pour bien interpreter les resultats observes sur le marche du travail. L'objectif du present document est de developper ce theme grace a l'examen de la conception de la politique sociale et de son interaction avec le marche du travail, en mettant l'accent sur le regime canadien d'assurance chomage (a. c.). Des donnees administratives couvrant l'univers des employes, des entreprises et des prestataires de l'assurance chomage au Canada sur une periode de 11 ans sont utilisees afin d'examiner le fonctionnement de l'assurance chomage du point de vue de l'entreprise, en accordant une attention particuliere aux questions longitudinales que soulevent le profil et les causes de l'interfinancement. L'etude montre que des transferts persistants se produisent par la voie de l'assurance chomage au niveau tant de l'industrie que de l'entreprise. Cet interfinancement est le propre d'une petite fraction d'entreprises. Une analyse tenant compte des effets fixes d'entreprise montre que presque 60 % de la variation expliquee de l'interfinancement persistant est due a ce genre d'effets. Le calcul de la perte globale d'efficacite est tres sensible au niveau de detail des donnees sur les entreprises. Pour saisir pleinement la facon dont les programmes sociaux, comme celui de l'assurance chomage, interagissent avec le marche du travail, il faut tenir compte des caracteristiques des entreprises et de leurs pratiques en matiere de ressources humaines, et l'etude de cette interaction pourrait etre plus fructueuse si l'on utilisait des modeles du chomage a contrat implicite.
