Abstract

This paper examines whether deregistration from the employment office decreases unemployment duration. The study is based on Russian individual-level data from the Public Employment Office of Rostov-on-Don combined with information from the 2000 household survey. Using a proportional hazard model, I find a significant excess in job finding rates following employment office deregistration. The predicted risk of getting a job is non-monotonic and tends to decrease at longer duration intervals. An important finding is that only 29% of the unemployed obtained a job simultaneously with deregistering from the Public Employment Office. Others continued to search for job on their own.
