Abstract: This thesis focuses on the long-term unemployment in the Czech Republic. The first
part is devoted to methodology of measuring the unemployment. In particular, it focuses
on differences between rate of unemployment published by ČSÚ (Eurostat) and rate
of registered unemployment which is published by MPSV. The content of the second
part is demography of the Czech Republic, especially features which are relevant to
structural restrictions on labor market. Hence, the educational and age structures of
the Czech Republic are analysed. The third part is divided into two sections. The first
section deals with the long-term unemployment at the aggregate level. At first, evolution
on the labor market in the last two decades is outlined. Then the structural and cyclical
unemployment are separated from the overall unemployment. At last, flexibility of the
labor market is examined. The logic of the microeconomic section lies in analysing
strategies of long-term unemployed. The thesis ends with the conclusion offering the
summary of the gained results.
