dc.description.abstractThis paper uses regional variation in labor markets, the industry structure and the educationalsystem to explain the training decisions of firms. Using a representative firm-level data set,the results show that firms are less likely to offer training if the number of competing firmssituated in the same geographical area is high. Furthermore, the supply of potentialapprentices affects the training decision positively through an improved matching process. Inaddition, the expected ability of apprentices also has a positive impact, whereas a moredeveloped system of full-time schooling options for school leavers reduces the likelihood of afirm to offer training.en_US
