This paper analyses recent gross worker flows in Spain using EPA (Labour Force Survey) and INEM (National Employment Office) data. These databases show significant differences both in the levels and trends of gross worker flows in Spain. Focusing on EPA data, unemployment inflows and outflows are large and similar to those which characterise labour markets with high dynamic efficiency. However, this aggregate behaviour hides a strong segmentation of the Spanish labour market between workers with temporary contracts, the more dynamic sector, and workers with permanent contracts, with much smaller flows. The cyclical behaviour of flows is similar to that found in other European countries: inflows into unemployment are procyclical and inflows into employment and outflows from employment are countercyclical. On the other hand, outflows from unemployment are countercyclical, due to the high percentage of temporary workers.
