On April 8, 2016, economists of IBS participated in the conference "Polish labour market: what do we learn about the unemployment patterns from the individual administrative data". The conference was organized by the Department of Economics I of Warsaw School of Economics. The keynote speakers were prof. Hartmut Lehmann (University of Bologna) and prof. Jonathan Wadsworth (London School of Economics). Professor Lehmann presented the results of his research on the relationship between work in informal sector and risk preferences. Prof. Wadsworth presented a modified approach to analyse the flows in the labour market for economies with changing population size. Five presentations at the conference were presented by our economists on research recently conducted in the Institute for Structural Research. Dr. Iga Magda presented the results on changes in inequality of opportunity in CEE countries. Piotr Lewandowski discussed the intensity of minimum wage violation in Poland and neighbouring countries. Jan Baran presented the results suggesting rising incidence of overeducation among Polish workers. Roma Keister discussed the evolution of task structure of jobs in CEE countries. Ewa Cukrowska-Torzewska presented an article, co-written with Iga Magda, analysing the impact of women at managerial positions on gender wage differentials at company level. We thank the Department of Economics I for organising such a valuable event. Special thanks go to our discussants: dr. Michał Gradzewicz, dr. Agnieszka Chłoń-Domińczak and dr.
