Imperfections in the German labour market


"This dissertation comprises five empirical papers contributing to scientific research in empirical labour economics. All these papers aim at filling research gaps covering topics important to various actors of the labour market. They rely on different micro data sources from Germany, apart from the data from the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) all of which are register and survey data provided by the Institute for Employment Research (IAB). The main focus is on the topic of educational mismatch, which four out of the five papers are devoted to, scrutinizing both its causes and its consequences for employers, employees, and labour market policy. By contrast, the last paper addresses asymmetric information in promotion decisions within and across establishments, hence covering another important aspect of imperfection in modern-day labour markets."
