The Effects of Unemployment on Subsequent Earnings: A Study of British Men 1984-94
This paper estimattes the impact of unemployment on subsequent earnings for a large and repesentative sample of British men, 1984094. Unemploymentincidence is found to have only a temporary effect, an average earnings setback of 10% on re-engagement largely eroding over two years. The effect of unemployment duration is permanent, a one-year spell adding a further 10 % penalty. These penalties are least for young men and the low paid- those most at risk of unemployment- and greatest for prime age and highly paid men. The effects have changed little over the ten years.
