Evaluation von Arbeitsgelegenheiten in der Mehraufwandsvariante im Jobcenter München


  • Koch, Susanne

"The so-called 'One-Euro-Jobs' are an important workfare program for unemployed persons receiving benefits according to Germany's Social Code II ('Sozialgesetzbuch Zweites Buch'), aiming at needy benefit recipients who can not be integrated into regular employment by means of other active labor market measures. This study evaluates the employment effects of these 'One-Euro-Jobs' for the city of Munich. The authors use administrative data and apply propensity score matching to estimate the treatment effects on the following outcomes: regular employment and neediness according to Social Code II. Our empirical results show that in Munich not only persons marginally attached to the labor market are allocated to One-Euro-Jobs. Moreover, One-Euro-Jobs decrease the participants' employment prospects significantly compared to similar non-participants, while unemployment benefit II receipt is increased due to participation. Additionally, we can show that One-Euro-Jobs partly financed by the city of Munich yield results worse than programs lacking communal co-financing." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
