Abstract: The study examines the effects of the active labour'market programmes on participants' probability to find work. The effectiveness criteria of these training programmes is evaluated by participants' and reference group members' later success on labour market. Programme participants' labour market statuses are compared about six months after their compieting the training period. Also post programme unempioyment durations were evaluated. Empiricai analysis is based on micro-levei panei data covering the period 1987-1998. Selection for training programmes is not random, because decision to apply for training is based on individuai characteristics. lndividuais who have good motivation appiy for training, while others may avoid training. Also administrative regulations have effect on the selection process: training programmes are usually allocated for dispiaced or long-term unempioyed individuals. Unless controlled these facts affect labour market transitions and thereby cause selection bias. Therefore selecting a proper statisticai model is important. ln this study different types of discrete choice models and survival analysis are used. According to the findings labour market training has some positive effect on employment probability, However, effects vary in different groups. For exampie, individuais with basic education benefit less from training programmes than those with higher education.
