Long-term unemployment and work deprived individuals: issues and policies

1 Dec 2001
Description

A. M. Dockery and Beth Webster write that the incidence of very long term unemployment has risen by nearly 1 percent per annum every year since the late 1970s. Their analysis identifies five different clusters of work deprived individuals. Policy suggestions include more targetted assistance for these clusters and enduring job creation programs, combined with an enhanced evaluation effort to guide future policy.
