In this context, 2 The evaluation problem: a formal statement 39 the interventions are randomized to different people on an individual basis. The impact of an intervention can then be evaluated by comparing average outcomes of those provided the intervention (the so-called “treatment group”) versus those provided some alternative intervention or no specific treatment (the “control group”). Policy interventions affecting the labor market are certainly different. Often they do not lend themselves to controlled implementation, and even more often they are implemented before a controlled experiment can be designed and executed.

We also presume that it is clear what the relevant outcomes are, and that the relevant unit of observation is the individual. For the purpose of addressing the problem in a sufficiently abstract way some degree of formalism will be unavoidable. In particular, it is fruitful to describe each individual in the realm of the program under scrutiny by several key characteristics. Denote the state associated with receiving the intervention by “1”, and the state associated with not receiving the intervention by “0”.

Equity reasons justify active policies targeted at long-term unemployed and the most disadvantaged individuals for redistributive reasons; these individuals are the most vulnerable and poorest group in the labor market. Efficiency reasons justify active policies, if negative external effects like wage pressure, resulting from a high share of long-term unemployed, affect the functioning of the labor markets.
