Evaluation of the effectiveness of the services and programs of active employment policies managed by the Community of Madrid and completed in 2016 and 2017. Specifically, training programs, guidance services and other actions aimed at promotion of employment among the most vulnerable groups.


The individual impact of an active employment policy is defined as the “advantage” obtained by the job seeker derived from their participation in the policy in terms of their opportunities to find a job with respect to a hypothetical situation of non-participation. While this last assumption cannot be observed, it is approached by creating a group with similar characteristics that has not participated in the policy (control group) by resorting to different statistical techniques. This proposal contemplates two types of impact indicators of active policy measures that are specified in a global indicator of access to employment and according to the quality of employment. To carry out the evaluation, a combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis techniques is applied
