From 3 to 5 May 2017, an educational programme „Labour Supply Modelling Based on the Theory of Discrete Choice” was held at the Institute of Public Finance. The programme was conducted by the institute Oslo Fiscal Studies (University of Oslo), with Professor John K. Dagsvik (Statistics Norway and Oslo Fiscal Studies) as the lecturer. Labour supply models simulate changes in labour supply behaviour as a result of changes in the tax-benefit system, wage rates and different socio-demographic variables. These models are increasingly used for ex-ante evaluations of the impact of various policy reforms on labour supply.

The participants have learnt about the traditional static labour supply models, elements of the discrete choice theory and labour supply models based on the discrete choice framework. Furthermore, various examples of applications of labour supply models were shown and the literature review in this area was provided.

Educational program was organised within the project Application of Microsimulation Models in the Analysis of Taxes and Social Benefits in Croatia, which is carried out by researchers of the Institute of Public Finance, and funded by the Croatian Science Foundation (UIP-2014-09-4096).
