Abstract: 
This paper estimates the employment effects of the Swedish trainee replacement schemes (an active labour market program that was in operation during the 1990s). The empirical analysis exploits a large and rich administrative data set, and we control for observed and unobserved selection bias by using a multiple equation model and the maximum likelihood estimation method. The estimation results point at a selection of participants having a high ex ante probability of employment. In addition, the results suggest that participation in replacement schemes increased the re-employment probability by 5 to 10 percentage points.
