Abstract

"Retraining of the unemployed is a major instrument of active labour market policies. Using German registry data and applying statistical matching methods we show that on average retraining strongly increases the employment probability of participants. However, we find differences in the effectiveness of retraining by target occupations. Despite these differences retraining in most of the considered occupations positively affects employment prospects of participants. Finally, sorting into different occupations seems to be present, as participants with different target professions also differ in their socioeconomic characteristics."
