Abstract

The authors analyze the effectiveness of three different search channels: advertisements, public employment office, and informal channels. Their approach integrates search on both sides of the labor market. For each search channel, the authors specify matching functions in which the number of vacancies and the number of searchers in that market are input variables. The effectiveness of the search channels can be assessed on the basis of the estimated parameters of the matching functions. The matching functions are estimated using market level data and micro data on vacancy duration and job search duration. Copyright 1994 by Royal Economic Society.
