ABSTRACT

High unemployment rates are observed among people beginning job careers nowadays. The aim of the work is to identify demographic and socio-economic factors influencing the unemployment duration in this age group. In this research, Bayesian semiparametric Cox model for individual data has been used. The advantage of survival model is the possibility of the analysis of the impact of selected independent variables on unemployment duration. The Bayesian approach with a priori distribution makes the use of out of the sample knowledge possible. The model has been estimated using Markov chain Monte Carlo method with ARMS algorithm.

KEYWORDS

unemployment, semiparametric Cox model, Bayesian inference, Markov chain Monte Carlo method
