Verfestigung von früher Arbeitslosigkeit: Einmal arbeitslos, immer wieder arbeitslos?



"We investigate the relationship between cumulative unemployment experienced during the first eight years of the professional career and unemployment accumulated during the following 16 years with administrative data on those males who graduated from Germany's dual apprenticeship system between 1978 and 1980.
Unemployment during the early career is associated with a significantly increased risk to become unemployed again in later years.
Young workers who were unemployed for particularly long periods during the first eight years on the labor market are later more frequently unemployed and for longer periods than workers without considerable early unemployment experience.
The most significant difference, however, appears in the increased number of separate episodes of unemployment." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
