Vliv investic do dálniční infrastruktury na socioekonomické ukazatele vybraného regionu
Kučera, Štěpán
Kučera, Š. The impact of state investments in highway infrastructure on socio-economic indicators of a selected region. Master thesis. Brno: Mendel University in Brno, 2023. The thesis focuses on the identification of the impact of state investments in highway infrastructure on selected socio-economic indicators. The variables examined include unemployment rate, number of companies by number of employees, housing construction and total population growth. The thesis focuses on the assessment of the impact of the implementation of the D1 highway section, which connects the capital city of Prague and the regional city of Hradec Králové. Based on theoretical assumptions, the thesis uses a difference-in-differences method, which is combined with a synthetic control method with panel regression techniques. The empirical analysis focuses on assessing the impact of highway construction on the dynamics of selected socio-economic indicators within the region, which includes six municipalities with extended jurisdiction, and data are examined with an annual frequency from 2002 to 2021. The results suggest that the implementation of highway infrastructure as part of state investment does not automatically confer a competitive advantage and economic growth, as would be expected from initial assumptions.

Veselý, Vladislav ; Kalíšková, Klára (advisor) ; Dušek, Libor (referee)
In January 2015, a zero gambling tolerance came into force in Jablonec nad Nisou, which prohibited casinos and playrooms. It is generally assumed that gambling increases criminality, but the effect in the Czech Republic has not been quantified yet. Based on the regression analysis of monthly data from 2013-2016 this work examines the hypothesis of the existence of a negative relationship between gambling regulation and crime by using the difference in differences method. The town of Semily was used as a control group. This hypothesis is confirmed based on the used model - the regulation of gambling in Jablonec nad Nisou is associated with the average monthly decrease of the total crime rate by 0.3622 crimes per 1000 inhabitants (16% decrease) and the average monthly decrease of the property crime rate by 0,3871 crimes per 1000 inhabitants (30% decrease).

Junga, Přemysl ; Zouhar, Jan (advisor) ; Školuda, Václav (referee)
The thesis analyses the influence of reimbursement regulatory fee for hospitalization which was introduced in regional hospitals in 2009 in Czech Republic. The difference in differences analysis was used to study the possible relationship between reimbursement of the fee for length of hospitalization in acute care hospitals and in after-care facilities. In acute care the influence was 0,5-1 % of the length and in after-care facilities between 8-12 %. This relationship may be biased because of introduction of DRG system which may decrease the length of stay and may be differently distributed between the treatment and control groups.
