Occasional Paper Number 15—Payroll Taxation and Employment: A Literature Survey, December 1996

Since the early 1980s, chronic unemployment problems in Canada, as well as in most other industrialized countries, have prompted a heightened interest in the empirical research of the causes of persistent unemployment. Among the areas examined have been employer payroll taxes and their effect on job creation. This paper is a survey of the more noteworthy analysis performed in this area with an emphasis on Canadian empirical research.
