Virtues of SIN - effects of an immigrant workplace introduction program
() and Per Johansson
Abstract: We evaluate an immigrant workplace introduction program
aimed at helping individuals considered employable but at the same time
expected to experience substantial difficulties in finding work. Using
supported employment methods, the SIN program may influence outcomes
through several channels. We use in-dividual data and a
difference-in-differences approach to estimate the effects of the program.
The results suggest that the program increased transitions from
unemployment to work experience schemes, and improved future employment
probabilities for those who entered these schemes.
