Abstract: 
We study state dependence in the German welfare system and compare transition patterns before and after recent reforms of the welfare system (Hartz Reforms). Using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel, we apply dynamic multinomial logit estimators and find that welfare transitions have generally not changed significantly after the reform: the probabilities of welfare entry and welfare exit increased only slightly whereas the probability of welfare persistence declined somewhat. After the reform, welfare persistence and welfare-to-employment transitions of immigrants became more responsive to the labor market situation.
