An evaluation of the Swedish trainee replacement schemes
Abstract: This paper estimates the employment effects of the Swedish
trainee replacement schemes (an active labour market program that was in
operation during the 1990s). The empirical analysis exploits a large and
rich administrative data set, and we control for observed and unobserved
selection bias by using a multiple equation model and the maximum
likelihood estimation method. The estimation results point at a selection
of participants having a high ex ante probability of employment. In
addition, the results suggest that participation in replacement schemes
increased the re-employment probability by 5 to 10 percentage points.
