L'appariement des emplois vacants et du chômage en France


  • Martial Maillard


[eng] Matching Job Offers and Unemployment in France by Martial Maillard . This paper develops an econometric study of the matching process for job offers and the unemployed on the French labour market. An aggregate analysis is made considering the hiring of full-time employees on long-term contracts. It uses monthly data relating to the period from 1974 to mid-1992. The hypothesis of the constancy of the matching function's returns on scale is not rejected, while a decrease in the efficiency of the labour market's functioning since 1974 is observed. [fre] L'appariement des emplois vacants et du chômage en France par Martial Maillard . Ce texte développe une étude économétrique du processus d'appariement des emplois vacants et des chômeurs sur le marché du travail français. L'analyse se place au niveau agrégé et considère les embauches à plein temps et à durée indéterminée. Elle utilise des données mensuelles relatives à la période de 1974 à la mi-1992. L'hypothèse de constance des rendements d'échelle de la fonction d'appariement n'est pas rejetée, tandis qu'une diminution de l'efficacité du fonctionnement du marché du travail depuis 1974 est constatée.
