Abstract

The paper provides a review of the methodology of Survival Analysis and Causal Inference in the labour market context. This literature has been used to analyse and study the effects of (active) labour market policies adopted during the last years. Determining factors of the literature are also analysed: the types of data bases, the makeup of treatment and control groups, and the outcome variables. Kaplan-Meier (non-parametric) estimates and duration models constitute the main instruments in Survival Analysis. Causal Inference focuses on Matching methods, Difference-in Difference method and Instrumental Variables procedure to determine the causal effect of a policy. Se ofrece en este artículo una revisión de la metodología sobre Análisis de Supervivencia e Inferencia Causal en el ámbito del mercado de trabajo. Esta literatura se ha utilizado para analizar y estudiar los efectos de las medidas laborales que se han adoptado en los últimos años en diversas economías. Se analizan los factores determinantes de esta literatura, como son la naturaleza de las bases de datos, y la constitución de los grupos de tratamiento y de control y la variable objeto de estudio. Mientras las estimaciones no paramétricas de Kaplan y Meier y los modelos de duración constituyen los principales instrumentos en el Análisis de Supervivencia, en la Inferencia Causal se utilizan los métodos de emparejamiento, de diferencias en diferencias y variables instrumentales para determinar el efecto causal de una política.
