Strike Data with a Crisis Point

Author

  • Lieberman, O.

Abstract

The paper is concerned with the analysis of strike data in which the distribution of short strikes differs from that of long strikes. It appears through visual inspection and asymptotic prodecures that for Israeli strikers in the years 1965-1992, the hazard function is exponential for strikes lasting less than 40 days and that it is Weibull with a Weibull parameter greater than unity for longer strikes.
