Gender unemployment dynamics in six European countries
The paper investigates unemployment dynamics in six European countries with a particular focus on the gender dimension. Applying a recently established methodology on widely available LFS annual data it calculates the job finding and separation rates and estimates their relative contributions to the fluctuations of male and female unemployment rates. It finds that gender differences in the separation rate explain both the determination and the evolution of the gender unemployment gap. It attributes these differences to female attachment to the labour force.
