    Abstract

    This paper examines the role of pay, human capital and mismatch in the decision to quit an occupation. Particular emphasis is given to human capital accumulation where occupations provide a fixed amount of training opportunities. An occupational quits equation is estimated using micro data from the National Training Survey, 1974. Education, training, pay, and life-cycle effects are found to have a significant impact on the quit decision. The determinants of intrafirm promotion and interfirm occupational mobility are also examined. Copyright 1995 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
