The Employment Experience Of The Unemployed


  • Glenn Jenkins

    () (Queen's University, Kingston, On, Canada)



This study examines the employment experience of workers in Canada who were unemployed at some point during the period 1972 through 1979. The employment-unemployment experience of workers over this eight-year period was derived from a data base constructed from the one-in-ten sample of the administrative records kept by the Department of Employment and Immigration concerning Unemployment Insurance (UI) claims, Records of Employment and certain income tax records of individuals in Canada. From this data a history of the employment experience of individuals during the time they were in labour force is constructed.
