In this paper we analyze the entry of unemployed people registered at the Public Job Services (CSL) into the labor market. Referring to the registered unemployment to the CSL during 2008 , approximately 60,000 people declared to be willing to work. After one year it is verified that 30.4% of them were able to get out of administrative unemployment, 29.6% found a job which is not significant enough to get out of the unemployment status, and finally the remaining 40 % had never worked. These numbers are very interesting since they come from an administrative source and can be used to periodically and geographically monitor the dynamics of the labor market and to approach the evaluation problem along the effectiveness dimension. In order to understand if and how the activity of each individual can be considered effective by CSL in consideration of local contexts in which they operate, on-line data storage and information processing procedures are adopted. Such procedures ensure that the same data can be correctly used for statistical purposes as they are standardized and replicable procedures which allow extreme time and cost savings.

Keywords: Public job services, administrative sources, effectiveness of labor policies, local labor market dynamics.
