Arzilli, Francesco and Morescalchi, Andrea Housing Tenure and Job Search Behaviour. A Different Analysis of the Impact of the UK Jobseeker’s Allowance. Discussion Paper #11/2011 Dipartimento di Scienze Economiche (DSE), University of Pisa ISSN 2039-1854.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper investigates the relation between job search effort and housing tenure by focussing on the impact of the UK Jobseeker's Allowance reform introduced in the UK in 1996. Theory suggests that a tightening in job search requirements, as implied by this reform, raises movements off benefit of non-employed with low search intensity and this effect adjusts in size depending on the different housing tenure. Average Treatment Effect estimates confirm that the impact of the reform on the claimant outflow rate is related to housing tenure.
