Contradictions in employment development at the background of anticipated demographic and structural changes in the SR
Kontradikcie vo vývoji zamestnanosti na pozadí očakávaných demografických a štruktúrnych zmien v SR
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Ing. Lichner Ivan PhD.
Annotation:The project identifies current and future barriers to increasing the employment rate in light of expected demographic development and structural changes in the Slovak economy. Specific attributes of human capital will be confronted with population ageing and effects of this process on future changes in labour supply and demand structure (forecasts of graduates structure and employment by occupation elaborated within the project will be utilized). Risk factors limiting the employment growth will be identified. Future trends of quantitative and qualitative features of examined production factor will be anticipated and changes of its institutional framework will be recommended (active labour market policies, labour migration, social system optimization for higher motivation to seek employment - principle "making work pay", competitiveness growth factors etc.).

SHERM - Forecasting of Regional Development and Assessment of Effectiveness of Regional Policies Using the Structural HERMIN Model
Prognózovanie regionálneho vývoja SR a hodnotenie účinnosti regionálnych politík pomocou štruktúrneho makroekonomického modelu HERMIN
Program: APVV
Project leader: Ing. Radvanský Marek PhD.
Annotation:Slovakia belongs to the EU countries with the largest regional disparities, albeit every government had listed mitigation of regional disparities amongst its priorities. National economic policy tends to underestimate specific effects of measures implemented at the regional level. Relatively limited attention is also paid to analytical support for regional decision making and forecasting. The project goal is to develop and apply state of the art quantitative tools to enhance decision making, analysing and forecasting of policy measures impact. Measures to increase efficiency of regional and cohesion policy (RP/CP) with respect to sustainable and inclusive growth will be analysed too. Project consists of 3 parts. Methodology and assumption part analyses current development and objectives of RP/CP anddefines the economic policy instruments to achieve them. Main part of the project will focus on adjustment of the augmented structural econometric model HERMIN together with creation of a system of 8 satellite models for each region at NUTS 3 level. The HERMIN methodology approved by EC for CP evaluation and forecasting has never been applied in this form. Its application will result in significant methodological shift on an international scale. The key innovation will be, in addition to its regionalisation (NUTS 3), a more detailed view of sectoral development of labor market (NACE) with regard to education (ISCED) and occupation (ISCO). Additional benefit of the project (not yet applied in SR) will be estimation of regional prices development based on HBSpanel data. Additional analysis will focus on reduction of uncertainty in ex-post regional data estimation and estimations of inter-regional flows of goods, services and labor. Final part will be devoted to evaluation of existing policies, synthesis and use of forecasting and simulations results for policy design. We assume that the results will contribute to adjustment of actual implementation of RP/CP in Slovakia.

LM_evidence - Generating scientific information to support labour market policy making
Tvorba vedeckých informácii na podporu politík trhu práce
Program: APVV
Project leader: Mgr. Štefánik Miroslav PhD.
Annotation:The main objective of the project is to support the creation of labour market policies and the adjustments of the tax-benefit system through the creation of relevant, scientific information. The main objective will be achieved within the three main activities of the project. The first activity covers the processing of administrative data to produce ex-post evaluations of active labour market policy measures. Using counterfactual impact evaluation techniques, net treatment effects of particular measures will be estimated, complying with the international standards applied in policy impact evaluation. The results of the activity will thus significantly add to the existing state of knowledge about the net effectiveness of active labour market policy in Slovakia. The second activity covers further development and modifications of the VZAM microsimulation model, developed at the Institute of Economic Research of the SAS within previous APVV projects. At present, the model is applied to simulate the development in the structure of the supply side of the Slovak labour market; the change in the educational structure of the population, as well as the structure of employment by occupation and the sector of economic activity. By modifying the model, it will be possible to extend its applicability to the ex-ante simulation of changes in labour market policies and the tax-deductible system and their subsequent impact on employment, wage growth, or public finances. The application of internationally used techniques of impact evaluation usually requires smaller methodological adjustments. The reason may be both the data availability, but also specific needs of the decision-making sphere. The third activity, thus, covers the communication of specific requirements of the decision-making sphere, along with possible development of methodological innovations.
