Topic 2 经济学论文作业代写

The impact of an unemployment assistance scheme on transition to employment

In May 2002, Argentina launched the Plan Jefas y Jefes de Hogar Desocupados (Program for Unemployed Heads of Households) as a response to the increase in unemployment and poverty triggered by the crisis of 2001/2002. This programme consists of a monthly monetary transfer for eligible unemployed household heads for an unlimited duration, but with a requirement to provide a labour contribution in the form of a communitarian task.

Empirical evidence suggests that Plan Jefes has indeed been an effective safety net during the crisis, by targeting the least skilled and protecting individuals against poverty.

However, the design of the programme, in particular the availability of benefits for an unlimited duration, may have unintended and unappealing longer-term consequences. 经济学论文作业代写

Households’ reliance on Plan Jefes may reduce job search incentives and damage individual employability.

Your aim is estimate the effect of Plan Jefes on the transition to employment among beneficiaries. The data set called Jefes4317.dta contains information on participants and non-participants of Plan Jefes, and changes in labour market status between May 2002 and May 2003 (remain unemployed, transit to employment, inactive). There are two groups of non-participants – those who applied for Plan Jefes and were denied entry and those who did not apply. Additional information on Plan Jefes and the evaluation strategy can be found in the readings below.

Aid effectiveness

Your task is to examine the link between aid and GDP growth. You are interested in exploring (i) potential non-linearities in the aid-growth relationship and whether (ii) aid is more effective in countries with “good policies”.

The data is contained in an excel file called AidandGrowthRegressions.xls.

You should of course convert your data to STATA format before commencing your econometric analysis.
