A study of the labour market trajectories in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg
AbstractWe present an analysis of the register of all unemployment episodes in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg over a recent period of 55 months. We apply propensity score matching to account for the systematic differences among the groups of subjects (registrants) and unemployment spells. We devise graphical and tabular summaries for describing the sequences of employment states of the members of the labour force who register at Agence pour le développement de l'emploi, the Luxembourg Public Unemployment Agency. Some employment-related information about them is collected by linking their records to the national register of social security contributions, maintained by Inspection générale de la sécurité sociale. A class of univariate indices for characterising the sequences of labour force states is defined.
