We show that, until the early 2000s, close to 60% of changes in the unemployment rate are due to changes in the inflow rate (job separation). On the contrary, since the implementation of the reforms in the mid-2000s, the importance of the outflow rate (job finding) has been steadily increasing. This indicates that matching efficiency has improved substantially in recent years. Results from an estimated matching function - pointing to efficiency gains of more than 20% - corroborate this finding.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2013-01-11T09:40:57Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>The Aggregate Effects of the Hartz Reforms in Germany</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Sigrist, Oliver</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2013-01-11T09:40:57Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Hertweck, Matthias Sebastian</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Sigrist, Oliver</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
