What is Jobeffekter.dk?
Jobeffekter.dk is a knowledge bank gathering and disseminating relevant research results on the labour market. The website was developed in 2013 by the Danish Agency for Labour Market and Recruitment collaboratively with a number of independent researchers.
Jobeffekter.dk is for researchers, students, practitioners, politicians or government officials and the aim of the website is to provide a quick and easy up-to-date and honest overview of what has been proved to have a positive effect on the labour market.
The effects on Jobeffekter.dk are based on over 400 Danish and international research-based studies selected, assessed and uploaded to the knowledge bank by researchers, and new studies are regularly uploaded in a effort to collect as much of the current knowledge as possible. In their assessment, the researchers take into account the quality and relevance of the study by weighting the studies, so that a Randomized Controlled Trial from Denmark for instance weighs higher than a register-based study from another country. On the basis of the results of the weighted studies, the overall conclusion on effect is calculated for the target groups and interventions that you want to find information on.
On Jobeffekter.dk, you can find and compare the effects of various interventions for different target groups. Moreover, you can search for key effect studies on the labour market and view how these studies have been quality-assured by researchers. Finally, you can upload your own suggestions for studies that you think should be included in the knowledge bank as well as save and share the results and studies that are of particular interest to you.
