Abstract

[eng] Unemployment Duration and the Duration of Entitlement to Unemployment Benefit . by Elena Stancanelli . The aim of this paper is to investigate the impact of the level and the expected duration of employment benefits on the individual probability of leaving unemployment. The relation between the expected duration of unemployment benefit and the probability of leaving unemployment has recently attracted considerable attention. Still a limited number of empirical studies is available for European countries. The data used for the analysis relate to the UK. The probability of leaving unemployment to take up a full-time job is distinguished from the probability of exiting in other states. I conclude that although there is some evidence of spikes in the hazard rate near the time of expected benefit exhaustion, no statistically significant benefit exhaustion effect is found. [fre] L'impact de l'allocation chômage sur la probabilité de réemploi : de nouveaux résultats pour le Royaume-Uni . par Élena Stancanelli . L'objet de cet article est d'étudier l'impact du niveau et de la durée attendue de l'allocation chômage sur la probabilité individuelle de sortir du chômage. La relation entre la durée attendue d'allocation chômage et la probabilité de sortir du chômage a récemment fait l'objet d'une grande attention. Néanmoins, le nombre d'études empiriques disponibles sur les pays européens reste limité. Les données utilisées dans cette analyse se rapportent au Royaume-Uni. La probabilité de quitter le chômage pour un emploi à plein temps est distinguée de la probabilité de sortie vers un autre état. Nous concluons que, bien qu'il y ait des indications de pics dans le taux de hasard quand on se rapproche de la fin des droits à l'allocation chômage, l'effet de l'expiration des fins de droits sur la probabilité de sortie du chômage n'est pas statistiquement significatif.
