Replacement rates; a transatlantic view

This working paper gives a unique overview of the income position of unemployed workers. For the member states of the European Union and for three states of the United States the so-called replacement rate has been calculated.

The project was carried out by members of the CPB staff: Ton Brouwer, Philip ten Cate, Peter Dekker, Anja van der Linden and Helmer Vossers. Jannie Droog, Petronelle Fraanje and Annemarie Spaans typed the many versions of the review. At the start of the project Piet Donselaar contributed to it. The project was co-financed by grants from the European Commission and the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.
