Analyse microéconomique du non-recours (non take-up) à certaines prestations sociales : application à l'Allocation Parentale d'Education (APE)

Abstract : The non-take-up of social benefits can be defined as the fact that an individual does not receive the benefit he is eligible for. The scope of the Ph.D. dissertation is to lighten the causes of this phenomenon, and to show how the behavior of the individual can be explained. Such a behavior can be explain through a cost/benefit analysis, that is to say that the individual decides not to take up the benefit after having compared the benefit he will receive with the costs related to the process of demand. These costs are attributed to the search for information, to the complexity of the process of demand, to the stigma that the recipient could feel. The analysis is applied to the “allocation parentale d'education”, a French benefit designed to parents with at least two children, and who do not work full time. This analysis allows us to lighten some other specific factors that can explain especially the non-take-up of this benefit, because ape presents an eligibility condition of behavior (to reduce time of work, in order to avoid being full time worker). This condition leads to define another type of non-take-up, related to this condition of behavior: the quasi non take-up that refers to parents who are not eligible for ape, but who would have been adopting the expected behavior if they had been aware of the different advantages related to the benefit. the empirical analysis (using a logic model) allows us to conclude that factors concerning the costs of information and complexity can really explain for some part the non-take-up and the quasi non take-up of ape, and outlines that this last phenomenon really results of a cost/benefit comparison that takes into account, inter alia, factors that are not of finality
