[EN] Using micro-level data from the Household Labor Force Survey for the 2004-2011 period, this study evaluates whether the employment subsidies introduced in 2008 have an impact on the employment probabilities by demographic groups. Implementing the difference-in-differences method, we show that the employment gap between the target group, which consists of males of age 18-29 and all females, and males above 30 years old has narrowed by 1.4 percentage points. In terms of the subgroups, we observe that this aggregate effect mostly comes from the narrowing between the employment probabilities of females above 30 years old and males above 30 years old by 2.6 percentage points. When improving the employment prospects of the groups with low labor market participation is the concern, we think, in light of these results, that the subsidy program has produced satisfactory outcomes.
