Abstract [en]

This article uses data froma field experiment inSweden to analyze the effects ofactive placement efforts. In particular, the relative efficiency between combining job-search monitoring and job-search assistance, and monitoring alone, is analyzed. Although the impact estimates are generally imprecisely estimated, a general conclusion is that placement programs are effective policies in increasing the job exit rate for various groups of unemployed. I find that monitoring of job search is an efficient method to increase off-unemployment exit rate both alone and combinedwith job-search assistance services.The results, however, indicate that the combined services generate more permanent job exits.
