Here you will find different papers that I have been involved in. As I am not yet an Economist you should be critical in your reading. And since ecomonics is not an exact science there may be more than one version of the truth, or perhaps I am wrong in my views. However I have passed all my exams with the projects listed here.Project in Causal Impact Analysis, December 2005Here is a PDF-file with the project.AbstractThe paper is a part of the curriculum in the 10 ECTS-point course `Causal Impact Analysis,’ offered by the Department of Economics, Aarhus University, in the fall of 2005.The purpose of the paper is to apply, analyse and test different labour econometric methods in their ability to uncover the effect of unemployment on mortality. For this purpose I use a large longitudinal register based data-set located at Afdeling for Sundhedstjenesteforskning, Aarhus University. The database is a 10 percent random sample of the population in the counties of RingkÃ¸bing, Ã…rhus, Viborg, and Nordjylland with rich information on geographical, demographical, and social characteristics and about the individuals use of public health services, hospital admissions, and mortality. Each year the sample is adjusted for deaths and persons moving from the region; hence the sample consists of 10 percent of the local population each year from 1990–2003.The main finding is that unemployment has a significant effect on mortality, but the effect is strongly decreasing with age; thus unemployment causes a very small increase in risk of mortality for older persons, while younger person in their thirties and fourties face a significantly higher risk compared with employed persons of similar characteristics.Project in Labour Economics, June 2005Here is a PDF-file with the project.The topic is cost-benefit analysis of the Danish Active Labour Market Programmes (ALMP). Motivation: 1,5 percent of the Danish GDP is used on these programmes, which are usually divided into private and public jobtraining, classroom training, and residual programmes (which are more individually oriented). The central question here is whether or not the benefits outweigh the substantial cost of these programmes. I look into two investigations conducted by the Danish Economic Council and Jespersen, Munch, and Skipper (2004). The investigations conclude differently, but you are welcome to look into my survey to get an idea.Project in Applied Macro-econometric Models, january 2005Here is a PDF-file with the project.Update 17.01.2005: Uploaded a new version of the project with a few minor corrections.Input files:Input-file for replication of chapter 7. Add code to master input-file.Input-file for replication of chapter 8. Add code to master input-file.Master-Input file for running the model. (Note: I have removed the file due to disk space considerations. Leave me a comment if you would like to have it.)
