Abstract

This paper provides detailed information about spatial interactions in the job creation process in West German regional labor markets. We investigate spatial (auto-) correlations in the matching process of vacancies and unemployed, examine regional hiring patterns, and identify clusters of regions with intense inter-regional matching. An extensive specification analysis illustrates the extent of regional dependencies. We investigate the impact of German re-unification on regional patterns of job creation, and compare regional matching efficiencies using a stochastic frontier approach.
