Causality and Selection in Labour Market Transitions Dissertation for the Dr.Polit Degree
The dissertation contributes to the micro-economic and - econometric literatures of labour market transitions. By utilising the Norwegian official administrative register data on the entire unemployment population from 1989 to 2000, the candidate for the doctorate has investigated some of the most important causal relations pertaining to the transitions from unemployment to employment. The selection problem associated particularly with empirical analysis of labour market data is also the focal point of this thesis. The candidate has presented some of the methodological contributions to nonparametric identification of causality, and decomposing causal relations and selection mechanisms.
