Une première évaluation de la prime pour l'emploi à l'aide du modèle MYRIADE

The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of the French tax credit – prime pour l’emploi – created in 2001. This assessment has been carried out through simulations made with MYRIADE, a micro-simulation model, currently being built at the Caisse nationale des allocations familiales and specifically designed to analyse tax and socials policies. Our results show that the prime pour l’emploi reduces the average net tax rate for two kinds of individuals: individuals with low income who are members of a family with at least one employed worker and individuals whose standard of living is at the average of the overall population but who support a particularly high net average tax rate. Classification JEL : C81, D19, D30, D63 et H23
