Project description

This strategic program on labor market and social benefits is financed jointly by the Ministry of Labour and social benefits and the Ministry of Finance. The program aims at further development of the Frisch Centre expertise in microeconometric analysis of labor market flows based on administrative register data. In the research program, we will augment the individual longitudinal data from administrative registers with information on firms and workplaces. Applications will include studies of sickness, disability, hiring, firing and temporary leaves, and the impact of shocks and structural change on such outcomes. The program aims at international publications, development of networks, recruitment and training of researchers.
