Heterogeneity in unemployment state dependence

  • Plum, Alexander

Abstract

By applying a heterogeneous slope model, this paper shows that unemployment state dependence varies across workers. Assuming a homogeneous effect of past unemployment on the risk of staying unemployed underestimates the scarring effect of unemployment in the majority of countries analyzed.
