Abstract

Using longitudinal micro data on unemployed individuals for 1983-85, a structural job search model is estimated. The model allows for transitions from unemployment to nonparticipation. An extended version of the model deals with the influence of on-the-job search and prospective wage increases on search behavior of the unemployed. The empirical results show that the probability of accepting a job offer is almost one for most unemployed individuals. A large portion of unemployment spells ends in a transition out of the labor force. The effects of changes in benefits on duration appear to be extremely small.
