L'effet de l'allocation unique dégressive sur la reprise d'emploi

[eng] The effect of the unemployment benefits time curve on the rate of return to work by job seekers is studied based on a comparison of two successive regulations. The rules in force from 1986 to 1992, before the introduction of the Single Degressive Benefit (SDB), provided for a single drop in the level of benefits. The SDB introduced in 1992, however, provides for steady decreases in benefits. . The duration model estimates show that, under the pre-1992 system, the return-to-work rate rose sharply towards the end of the full-rate benefits period. This finding holds mainly for the job seekers with the highest past wages. The introduction of the SDB levelled off the return-to-work rate time curve. The estimated highly significant deviation between the probabilities of remaining unemployed under the old and new system is only partly ascribable to macroeconomic variations. There remains a difference that can be explained by the change in benefits time curves. In other words, the type of degression implemented from 1992 to 1996 probably slowed down the return to work. [spa] El efecto del perfil económico temporal de la indemnización del paro sobre la tasa de la vuelta al empleo de los parados se hace patente al comparar dos reglamentaciones sucesivas. La reglamentación que se ha dado de 1986 a 1992, antes de la introducción del subsidio único degresivo (AUD), se caracteriza por una única baja del nivel de indemnización, mientras que el AUD introducido en 1992 preve unas bajas regulares de su monto. . Las estimaciones llevadas a cabo a partir de modelos de duración, muestran que en la reglamentación de antes de 1992 la tasa de vuelta al empleo aumenta con creces cuando se acerca el fin del periodo de indemnización a plena tasa. Este resultado es valedero esencialmente para aquellos desempleados cuyos salarios antes del paro eran los más altos. La introducción del AUD ha borrado el perfil temporal de las tasas de vuelta al empleo. La diferencia bastante fuerte entre la
