Disability in Belgium : there is more than meets the eye by Alain Jousten( )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper provides a perspective on the development of the Belgian disability insurance system. Using both survey and administrative data, it sketches a picture of the (changing) factors leading towards disability, as well as the outcomes in terms of program participation. The paper shows the key role of integrating other forms of early retirement programs into the analysis. The main findings are an unspectacular trend in the number of DI beneficiaries over time combined with a strong expansion of (early- ) retirement schemes
Health status, disability and retirement incentives in Belgium by Alain Jousten( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many Belgian retire well before the statutory retirement age. Numerous exit routes from the labor force can be identified: old-age pensions, conventional early retirement, disability insurance, and unemployment insurance are the most prominent ones. We analyze the retirement decision of Belgian workers adopting an option value framework, and pay special attention to the role of health status. We estimate probit models of retirement using data from SHARE. The results show that health and incentives matter in the decision to exit from the labor market. Based on these results, we simulate the effect of potential reforms on retirement
Measuring the technical efficiency of airports in Latin America by Sergio Perelman( )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper studies the technical efficiency of airports in Latin America. The evolution of productive efficiency in the region has seldom been studied, mainly due to lack of publicly available data. Relying on a unique dataset that was obtained through questionnaires distributed to airport operators, the authors use Data Envelopment Analysis methods to compute an efficient production frontier and compare the technical efficiency of Latin American airports relative to airports around the world. In a second stage, they estimate a truncated regression to study the drivers of observed differences in airport efficiency. According to the results, institutional variables (private/public operation), the socioeconomic environment (level of gross domestic product), and airport characteristics (hub airport, share of commercial revenues) matter in explaining airport productive efficiency. Finally, the authors compute total factor productivity changes for Latin American airports for 1995-2007. The region has implemented a wide variety of private sector participation schemes for the operation of airports since the mid 1990s. The results show that private operators have not had higher rates of total factor productivity change

Micro-stimulation of social security reforms in Belgium by Raphael Desmet( )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present paper analyzes the budgetary impact of various Social Security reforms in the Belgian institutional setting. Our approach relies on parameters that were derived in Dellis et alii (2002) using a micro-modeling strategy. focusing our attention on a hypothetical age cohort, we illustrate the budgetary impact that the reforms considered might have on the budget of the federal government
Infrastructure performance and reform in developing and transition economies : evidence from a survey of productivity measures by Lourdes Trujillo( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Estache, Perelman, and Trujillo review about 80 studies on electricity and gas, water and sanitation, and rail and ports (with a footnote on telecommunications) in developing countries. The main policy lesson is that there is a difference in the relevance of ownership for efficiency between utilities and transport in developing countries. In transport, private operators have tended to perform better than public operators. For utilities, ownership often does not matter as much as sometimes argued. Most cross-country studies find no statistically significant difference in efficiency scores between public and private providers. As for the country-specific studies, some do find differences in performance over time but these differences tend to matter much less than a large number of other variables ..."--Page 2 of cover
Capital humain et dualisme sur le marché du travail by Etienne Wasmer( )

1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'objectif de cet ouvrage est d'explorer les interactions économiques majeures entre le capital humain, le fonctionnement du marché du travail et la croissance régionale. La première partie traite du dualisme sur le marché du travail en Belgique et dans les pays développés. La deuxième aborde les liens fondamentaux entre capital humain et emploi. La troisième explore les implications macroéconomiques en matière de croissance et de convergence régionale. Une annexe statistique illustre l'état du marché du travail et de l'offre de qualifications en Belgique et dans les régions européennes. Cet ouvrage intéressera tout particulièrement les professeurs et étudiants en sciences économiques, les décideurs politiques, les institutions publiques, les collectivités locales
Vieillissement et entraide : quelles méthodes pour décrire et mesurer les enjeux?( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le vieillissement de la population wallonne impliquera des modifications de l'organisation de la société, en raison notamment de l'augmentation attendue des besoins d?entraide interpersonnelle. Afin de contribuer à la définition et à la mise en oeuvre d?une politique publique adaptée, les acteurs de la recherche gagnent à s?affranchir des barrières disciplinaires traditionnelles pour permettre une meilleure saisie de la complexité. Il s?agit de faire dialoguer les disciplines entre elles, voire de les croiser, pour proposer une meilleure prise en compte de tous les aspects des questions qui se posent.0Le but de cet ouvrage est de présenter un ensemble de méthodes utilisées pour étudier les multiples enjeux posés par la transition démographique en matière d?entraide. Il permet de cerner les apports et les limites de différentes approches méthodologiques (quantitatives et qualitatives) et disciplines (droit, sociologie, économie, démographie, santé, etc.) ainsi que certaines des difficultés suscitées par le travail multidisciplinaire comme, par exemple, celle de la recherche d?un langage commun.0Il contient une mise en perspective de réalités - démographiques, économiques, juridiques et historiques - et des analyses de méthodes utilisées pour identifier les enjeux du futur et définir les stratégies politiques, sociales et familiales qui permettront d?y répondre

Infrastructure performance and reform in developing and transition economies : evidence from a survey of productivity measures by Lourdes Trujillo( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors review about 80 studies on electricity and gas, water and sanitation, and rail and ports (with a footnote on telecommunications) in developing countries. The main policy lesson is that there is a difference in the relevance of ownership for efficiency between utilities and transport in developing countries. In transport, private operators have tended to perform better than public operators. For utilities, ownership often does not matter as much as sometimes argued. Most cross-country studies find no statistically significant difference in efficiency scores between public and private providers. As for the country-specific studies, some do find differences in performance over time but these differences tend to matter much less than a large number of other variables. Across sectors, private operators functioning in a competitive environment or regulated under price caps or hybrid regulatory regimes tend to catch up best practice faster than public operators. There is a very strong case to push regulators in developing and transition economies toward a more systematic reliance on yardstick competition in a sector in which residual monopoly powers tend to be common
A Primer on Efficiency Measurement for Utilities and Transport Regulators by Tim Coelli( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended to help regulators learn about the tools needed to measure efficiency. It is based on lecture notes from courses the World Bank Institute offers in English, French and Spanish throughout the developing world and has benefited from feedback received during those courses. It provides an overview of the various dimensions of efficiency that regulators should be concerned with. It also summarizes the main quantification techniques available to facilitate decisions in the most common regulatory processes. The issues covered should be of particular interest to those policymakers and regulators interested in measuring relative efficiency and in implementing any incentive-based regulatory mechanism that requires the measurement of efficiency, such as price caps, revenue caps, or yardstick competition. The book focuses on methodology selection, data collection, and related issues. It provides readers with all the conceptual tools they need to make real-life decisions. It is also supported by a web site from which readers can download software they can use to implement the techniques described
