Job Stability and Labor Mobility in Urban Mexico: A Study Based on Duration Models and Transition Analysis

  • Angel Calderon Madrid
Registered author(s):

    Can the relatively slow growth of the formal sector in Mexico during the 1990s be attributed to a rigid labor market and to low turnover rates? Is the increasing share of workers in the informal sector and of self-employed workers evidence of market segmentation, and hence a source of inequality and poverty? Or, as suggested by Maloney (1997), could the relatively large and symmetric flows of workers among all sectors (formal, informal, self-employed, unemployed, etc. ) be more consistent with a well-integrated market where workers search across sectors for job opportunities than one where informal workers seek permanent status in the formal sector and stay until they retire?[1] [1] Maloney, (1997, p. 13).
