The EU LMP Program Dataset 1998–2013 (v. 18:07)

This is a dataset with yearly program-level observations of expenditures, participants, and program characteristics for several hundreds of labor market policy programs across Europe. The dataset, which is based on the European Commission’s labor market policy database, was prepared for my dissertation project. It was first used in Cronert (2017) in Socio-Economic Review and later in Cronert (2019) in Journal of Social Policy.
