The Contribution of Establishment Births and Deaths to Employment Growth
AbstractThis article examines how establishment births and deaths contribute to job creation, job destruction, and net employment growth at different frequencies of measurement. The longitudinal data are constructed from quarterly unemployment-insurance microdata from the state of West Virginia and are essentially a census of establishments in all industries. Defining establishment births and deaths is an exercise in how to use cross-sectional administrative data for longitudinal research purposes. The analysis of job flows indicates that establishment births and deaths account for about 19% of quarterly job creation and destruction and well over half of triennial job creation and destruction.
