Resource description

The paper analyzes the effect on the unemployment rate of a number of labour market policy variables; in particular, minimum wages and the parameters of the unemployment benefit. We study the unemployment rates of the Canadian provinces for five demographic groups. We conclude the replacement rate is in general the most important; but non-trivial effects are found for the qualification criteria and the minimum wage.
