Vocational Labour Market Training in Promoting Youth Employment
This study evaluates the employment effects of vocational labour market training in Finnish youth labour markets. We are especially interested in whether the timing of an intervention matters. We explore this issue by analyzing the monthly time paths of employment effects over an observation period of four years. The study adopts two different identifying assumptions in trying to identify the causal impact of training programmes, viz. conditional independence and the discontinuity in the probability of participation caused by the allocation of training to individuals over 20 years of age.
