Overview

McGinnity (Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin) compares welfare for the unemployed and its effects on individuals in the two countries, examining the experiences of unemployed people using longitudinal data from large, representative panel surveys. By introducing the time dimension, she says she is able, for example, to consider inflows and outflows from unemployment, to consider unemployment as a process rather than a state, and to compare income before and after unemployment to overcome some of the difficulties of establishing the direction of causality. The study is based on her 2001 Ph.D. dissertation for Oxford University, and uses data through the middle 1990s; she has neither updated the empirical analysis nor added developments in the literature.
