Heterogeneous Jobs and Re-employment Probabilities

Abstract

We estimate a competing risks model to explain job type specific re-employment probabilities. Job characteristics are distinguished by type of labor contract, commuting time, job level, and working hours. Not accounting for job characteristics may lead to a spurious duration dependence effect. Unemployment and related benefits have only a small effect on unemployment duration. Irrespective of the job type, lower educated and older workers and those who receive means tested minimum unemployment benefits have a longer expected unemployment duration. The higher educated have a greater probability of a temporary job and of a job with more than an hour commuting time when they find a job. Older workers have a lower probability of temporary job, but a higher probability of a job below the previous job level. Lower educated, older workers and those who receive means tested minimum unemployment benefits are possibly more fastidious about accepting a temporary job.
