Abstract

This paper aims at introducing the plurality of search methods in a job search model with endogenous intensity. Search methods are integrated through a function of information production, which influences both the offer rate and search costs. The equilibrium proprieties of the model lead to an indeterminate effect of the information produced by search methods use on the exit rate from unemployment. The microeconometric estimation of the structural model allows us to deal with this ambiguity. The method used takes into account the selection rule of search channels, their interdependence and the type of job found. Results highlight a different impact of the production of information on unemployment spells according to the type of job found. Besides, search methods have a discriminating effect on unemployment duration. L’objectif de cet article est d’intégrer dans un modèle de recherche d’emploi à intensité endogène la pluralité des modes de recherche observée dans plusieurs enquêtes. Ces modes sont introduits à travers une fonction de production d’information qui influence à la fois le taux d’arrivée des offres et les coûts de recherche. Les propriétés d’équilibre du modèle mettent en évidence une indétermination de l’effet de la quantité d’information produite par les modalités de recherche sur la durée des épisodes de chômage. L’estimation microéconométrique du modèle structurel permet de lever cette ambiguïté. La méthode adoptée tient compte non seulement de la règle de sélection des modes et de leur interdépendance mais aussi de la dualité des issues après le chômage (emplois traditionnels et emplois aidés). Les résultats des estimations concluent à un effet significativement différent de la fonction de production d’information sur la durée d’accès à l’emploi, selon la nature de ce dernier, et à des impacts discriminants des modes de recherche.
