El problema de desempleo en la economía andaluza (1990-2001): análisis de la transición desde la educación al mercado laboral

Author

Abstract

In this paper we examine some differential facts of the Andalusian labour market in comparison with the Spanish one, concentrating on the higher incidence of youth unemployment in Andalusia. Our results show that the probability that the Andalusian young workers quickly find their first significant employment is much lower than that of the rest of Spaniards. We find clear evidence that the main effects upon this probability are that of the business cycle, of individual education and also of parents educational attainment. Furthermore, the effect of this variable is much larger in Andalusia than in the rest of Spain, what we interpret as evidence about channels of information in Andalusia being more imperfect. Finally, we find some evidence that an university degree contribute less to have a lower expected unemployment duration in Andalusia than in the rest of Spain.
