Entry of young economists into working life: analysis of the determinants of first unemployment duration
This article studies the determinants of the unemployment duration for a cohort of young graduates: those who obtained their university degree in Business, Economics, Management and Marketing in the academic year 2001/2002 at the University of Seville, Spain. After estimating an ordered logit model for duration data, we conclude that graduates' final marks effect a positive impact on their labour insertion. Working while studying and the educational level of the mothers of the graduates also decrease the duration of this first unemployment. No significant effect is found for gender or type of degree dummies.
