Review of the Book 'Nonmonetary Eligibility in State Unemployment Insurance Programs: Law and Practice'

Other Titles
Abstract

[Excerpt] This monograph focuses on a relatively under-researched topic, namely, the effects of nonmonetary eligibility rules for both initial receipt of benefits and continued receipt once benefits are granted on the rates at which UI benefits are denied to applicants. The authors very competently employ both econometric and case study research methods to address these issues. Their econometric work utilizes quarterly state-level data between 1964 and 1981 and a fixed-effects framework to isolate those parameters of state unemployment insurance laws that influence denial rates. To supplement these analyses, they conduct interviews with key state and local program officials in six states; these interviews yield them a better understanding of the administrative policies agencies follow (given the statutory rules) that lead to high denial rates.
