Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) – Human Capital and Search Behaviour


This working paper uses a structural search model to examine how changes to different parameters in the Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) Applicant study might have changed the outcomes of the study. The model allows for the simulation of changes in the length of time an individual is required to stay on IA, the length of time within which a full-time job has to be found, the length of time the bonus can be received, and alternative levels of generosity of the bonus.
