Effects of public support for personal and household services




Oxford Research has been one of the partners to the project IMPact (Improving Measurement of Public support to Personal and Household Services), which was led by EFSI, the European Federation for Services to Individuals. The final report of the project is presented today, April 13th, at a conference in Brussels.

 

The aim of the project was to help member states improving the measurement and monitoring of the employment and budget effects of their support to the formal provision of Personal and Household Services (PHS). The goal was to create a common and comprehensive EU Guide to help Member States to improve assessment and monitoring of the macro-economic effects of their PHS-supporting measures. As such, the project addressed the following issues on an ex-ante and ex-post basis: job creation, transfer from the shadow economy to the formal economy, net job creation, sustainability/optimal level of public investment and return on investments, which were highlighted in 2012 by the European Commission as the main pitfalls of any monitoring of policies that target PHS sectors. The long-term objective of the project is to help public authorities to shape the policies that best fit their needs and objectives.

 

From Oxford Research, Ylva Grauers, Mats Kullander, Emilia Johansson and Anna-Karin Gustafsson contributed to the project. For more information, please contact Ylva Grauers, ylva.grauers@oxfordresearch.se
