Abstract

Recent panel data is used to reconsider the determinants of interstate differences in the ratio of insured to total unemployment. It is concluded that previous research on the influence of replacement rates, duration of jobless spells and female labour force participation is robust, but it is found that political affiliations and attitudes could be more important, and unionization rates less important, than once believed.
