Title:What a difference peers can make: The impact of social (work) norms on unemployment duration PDF Logo
Authors:Tolciu, Andreia
Issue Date:2009
Series/Report no.:HWWI Research Paper 1-24
Abstract:This article outlines a model of how social interactions among persons belonging to the same region might influence the individual unemployment duration. The impact is assumed to be enhanced through social work norms shared by peers within the group. Building on a range of German data sets and derived from multilevel analysis, the results show that social interactions in terms of social work norms, in conjunction with socio-demographic and regional characteristics, affect the individual unemployment duration.
