Economic Statistics : Study GuideBorut Kodrič
, 2023, drugo učno gradivo
Opis: The study guide is designed to introduce students to the main concepts used by statisticians and economists to measure economic phenomena, while emphasizing the practical applications of these concepts in real-world scenarios. The study guide describes how the production of economic statistics is organised, who are the main data producers, what are the main databases available over the Internet and how can the quality of statistics be assessed. Thanks to this study guide, students will better understand where to find and how to use statistics on national accounts, government’s public deficit and debt, short-term economic indicators, international trade and globalisation, labour market, prices and inflation, etc.
Ključne besede: economic statistics, index numbers, price statistics, demographic statistics, labour force statistics, labour market statistics, short-term business indicators, national accounts, productivity analysis

How flexicure are new EU member states?Suzana Laporšek

, 2012, objavljeni znanstveni prispevek na konferenci
Opis: The paper analyses the state of implementation of flexicurity policy components in the NMS and, by using panel regression analysis, estimates the relationship between flexicurity policy components (i.e., employment protection legislation, expenditures for active employment policies, participation in lifelong learning and net replacement rate) and labour productivity and long-term unemployment. The empirical analysis showed that the labour markets in the NMS are, on overall, not more rigid than the labour markets in the EU-15, however problematic remain low expenditure for active labour market policies, education and social protection and low participation in lifelong learning. NMS must, according to the results of the panel linear regression, improve their performance in mentioned areas in order to improve their labour productivity and decrease long-term unemployment.

Labour taxation and its impact on employment growthPrimož Dolenc

, 2012, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: The paper aims to assess the characteristics of labour taxation for five different groups of workers and labour market performance (in terms of employment and unemployment rate) in the EU and to examine whether tax wedge affects employment growth in the EU. The descriptive empirical estimates show that the level of labour taxation varies greatly across EU Member States, by which the tax wedge tends to be higher among New Member States (excluding Cyprus and Malta). Furthermore, the panel regression analyses confirm statistically significant negative relationship between tax wedge and employment growth in the EU as a whole. Therefore, the empirical analysis suggests that the EU-27 should continue with the trend of reducing tax wedge, as this would have favourable effects on labour market performance, especially among New Member States.

Flexicurity policies and their association with productivity in the European UnionPrimož Dolenc
, Suzana Laporšek
, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: The paper examines the issue of flexicurity in the EU Member States and studies the association between flexicurity policy components (i.e. employment protection legislation, lifelong learning programs, active and passive labour market policies) and labour and total factor productivity growth in 20 EU Member States over the 19912008 period. The empirical analysis pointed on the existence of large differences in the level of implementation of flexicurity policies across EU Member States, by which the least successful are NMS, especially with regard to active labour market and lifelong learning programs. As regards the relation between flexicurity variables and productivity growth, panel regression estimates showed that active labour market policies and participation in lifelong learning programs have a statistically significant positive association with labour and total factor productivity growth. On the other hand, rigid employment protection and high expenditures for passive labour market policies negatively relate to productivity growth.
