550,000 job-seekers (registered at Pôle emploi, the French public employment service) are randomized into several treatment or control groups. Control and treated groups are surveyed to collect their beliefs about key parameters of their local labor market. Treated jobseekers are additionally exposed to stylized (charts, text etc...) and personalized (micromarket=profession x local labor market) information at the end of the survey. We separate the treated group into several subgroups that receive different information packages. The information treatments provide distributional moments of wages and tightness and qualitative informationabout mobility along with all pair-wise interactions. The experiment will be implemented from mid-May to end of September 2021.
Using Pole emploi’s rich administrative data and an additional follow-up surveys we analyze the impact of this information on beliefs, job-search behavior and on relevant labor market outcomes.
