An Analysis of Unemployment Incidence and Duration: Some New Evidence from Canada
AbstractThis paper studies the incidence and duration of unemployment in Canada at an aggregate and a number of disaggregated levels with data from the Canadian Labour Force Survey covering 1976 to 2006. The principal empirical findings indicate that most of the changes in steady state unemployment rates during the study period can be attributed to changes in incidence rather than changes in expected duration.
