"Sequential strategies of assigning persons to different subsequent programmes play an important role in the activation of unemployed people through active labour market programmes. Especially for unemployment benefit II recipients it could be necessary to participate in different programmes to achieve integration. Therefore, it is important not only to know the selectivity and effects of single programmes but also of programme sequences. This descriptive study investigates the programme sequences of unemployment benefit II recipients considering different subgroups of them.
We use a sample of persons, who were registered unemployed and received unemployment benefit II on 30th September 2006. We analyse for individuals, who received permanently unemployment benefit II until the start of the first programme, in how many and in which programmes they participated and which were the most frequent combinations within nearly two years. Moreover the transition rates into the first and second programme are discussed. Last, but not least sequences of two or three programmes are analysed for different subgroups, who also participated in two or three programmes. The most frequent sequences consist of classroom trainings and One-Euro-Jobs. Results indicate that it is also important to distinguish between different groups of unemployed persons. Sequences consisting of One-Euro-Jobs are often applied to groups with long duration of unemployment benefit II receipt and low education, whereas different active labour market programmes like subsidized employment schemes are provided for the better risks which participated in more than one programme. Our sample is selective: the better risks in our sample leave the unemployment benefit II receipt earlier than our bad risks (sorting effect), which are more likely to participate on two or three sequential programmes or even in longer programmes like One-Euro-Jobs."
