Job Research Methods, Intensity and Effects

Abstract

This paper is an empirical examination of job-search methods and intensity based on a survey of the stock of the unemployed in Great Britain in September 1982. There are three main findings. First, the level of unemployment benefits is found to exert a very weak, independent influence on the choice of intensity. Second, except for the long-term unemployed, there are surprisingly small differences in search type and intensity across different groups of the unemployed. Third, there is little evidence of increasing returns in the search technology, either in the aggregate or disaggregated to five different search types. Copyright 1989 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
