Estimating a Simultaneous Search Model
The primary goal of this article is to specify and estimate a structural simultaneous search model and then determine the empirical importance of simultaneous search. The results indicate that new labor force entrants search simultaneously. A secondary goal is to identify and estimate job offer arrival rates and wage offer rejection probabilities separately. The results indicate that a significant portion of unemployment spells are caused by slow arrival rates, but policies intended to speed arrival rates would increase the average length of unemployment spells.
