Abstract

An analysis of labour market outcomes in the European Union Objective One funding area in Great Britain, Regional Studies. This paper uses data from the Labour Force Survey (1995–2005) to examine the short-run impact of European Union Objective One funding on local labour markets in Great Britain. The evidence from a difference-in-difference analysis reveals that employment and job-related training gaps between the Objective One and non-Objective One area narrowed during the funding period. Further investigation, using a range of control groups, suggests that this cannot be attributed to Objective One status per se. However, there is substantial variation across the four funding areas: Objective One status had a positive effect on employment in South Yorkshire and on job-related training in Wales.
