dc.description.abstractThis paper studies how changes in the two key parameters of unemployment insurance – thebenefit replacement rate (RR) and the potential duration of benefits (PBD) – affect theduration of unemployment. In 1989, the Austrian government made unemployment insurancemore generous by changing, simultaneously, the maximum duration of regular unemploymentbenefits and the earnings replacement ratio. We find that increasing the replacement ratio hasmuch weaker disincentive effects than increasing the maximum duration of benefits. We usethese results to split up the total costs to unemployment insurance funds into costs due tochanges in the unemployment insurance system and costs due to behavioral responses ofunemployed workers. Results indicate that costs due to behavioural responses are substantial.en_US
