dc.description.abstractThis paper provides a preliminary assessment of recent reforms of German employmentpromotion policy. While several recent studies analyze the impact of measures of employmentpromotion for the case of Germany, no comparable study exists on the aggregate level, thusprecluding any assessment of the overall impact of such measures. The reform of 1998recognized for the first time in the history of German employment promotion that evaluationshould be an integral part of the delivery of policy interventions. Yet, while this has led to animportant first step – the systematic collection of data – evaluation itself has mistakenly beenunderstood by the legislator as a pure accounting exercise. We discuss this problem from theperspective of the recent evaluation literature in economics and statistics, thus providing a frameof reference for performing credible scientific evaluation of employment promotion policy.en_US
