« The incidence and labour market effects of social security contributions »

Social security contributions (SSCs) represent a very large share of total taxation in OECD countries (26.1% in 2013), yet empirical studies of their effects on earnings are surprisingly limited. This two-day workshop at the Institute for Fiscal Studies will feature 9 papers on the incidence and labour market effects of SSCs, alongside a panel discussion on lessons learnt and directions for future research.

The workshop is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (grant ES/K006185/1) through the Open Research Area (ORA) programme.
