Unemployment Insurance Take-Up Rates in Canada: Facts, Determinants, and Implications
This paper examines the curious group of unemployed person who are eligible for unemployment insurance benefits but do not receive them. The characteristics of the group are illustrated and factors linked to the decision to take up benefits are identified. A measure is provided for the sensitivity of estimated unemployment insurance disincentive effects to the existence of eligible nonclaimants. The results of the paper suggest that detailed modeling of the decision to receive unemployment insurance benefits is needed if empirical work is to serve as a reliable guide for unemployment insurance policy reform.
