This project aims at evaluating the ongoing reform of the Norwegian welfare administration, which merges employment offices, social insurance offices, and the municipal social assistance offices (http://rokkan.uni.no/nav/). The purpose of this subproject is to assess the utilization of resources in relation to the services produced. The empirical basis will be data on various services, such the number of clients in active labour market programmes and resources such as manpower; all related to the timing of implementation etc. The empirical basis for the evaluation is administrative register data.
