An employer may be tempted to replace a certain group of workers for another due to changes in relative wages, which results in a net short-term employment effect of zero. An additional detrimental effect associated with general-equilibrium effects is deadweight loss. This effect occurs when jobs that are funded by the state would have been created also in the absence of the program. These potentially negative effects are mainly associated with subsidy-type programs, in particular with subsidies in the private sector, but also with direct job creation in the public sector.

Receiving the intervention is indicated by the individual indicator variable Di . That is, if individual i receives training under this program, then Di = 1. What we would like to compare is what would happen to individual i on the labor market, if i received the treatment (Di = 1), say a training program, as well as if i did not (Di = 0). Specifically, the labor market outcomes in post-treatment period t are denoted by Yti , if individual i did not receive treatment, and by Yti + ∆ i , if indi- 40 Chapter 3: The methodology of program evaluation vidual i received treatment.
