Across OECD countries, millions of unemployed have been out of work for more than a year. And others are at risk of becoming so. One possible way to combat the drift into long-term unemployment is to offer more assistance to job losers before they reach the stage of long-term unemployment. But it would be very costly to offer in-depth help to all of the job losers. This has led some countries to develop methods to both identify jobseekers at risk of becoming long-term unemployed and refer them to suitable labour market programmes, usually known as profiling. But is it possible to accurately identify such jobseekers? And if so, what assistance should be offered to them? Is profiling always appropriate ? Drawing on the experiences of four OECD countries, namely Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States , this publication highlights the key issues involved in profiling It also presents national reports from each of the four countries which not only reflect different approaches to profiling but also different views on the relevance and reliability of formal profiling methods.
