Sorting on Skills and Preferences: Tinbergen Meets Sattinger
AbstractThis paper proposes an assignment model where sorting occurs on attributes that aresimultaneously a skill (Sattinger, 1979) and a preference (Tinbergen, 1956). The keyfeature of this model is that the wage function admits both jobs� and workers� attributesas arguments. Since this function is generically nonlinear (Ekeland et al., 2004), evenunder positive assortative matching, the correlation between the contribution ofworkers� attributes to wages and that of jobs� attributes can vary from -1 to 1 dependingon the parameters of the model, i.e. preference, technology and the distribution of bothsets of attributes. The paper discusses a closed form solution of the model, presentsconditions for the nonparametric identification of compensating wage differentials andnonadditive marginal utility functions using observations from a single hedonic marketand proposes a nonparametric estimator.
