Abstract

This paper looks at labor force mobility in the formal labor market in Uruguay during 1997-2009. The study is based on a sample of longitudianal labor histories taken from the social security administrative records. Different indicators are considered : entry and exit rates, transitions across different labor market states, job to job mobility and non parametric analysis of flows out of the formal labor market. Our results whow significante mobility in terms of entries and exits from the formal labor market, with important heterogeneities between groups. Job to job flows show an important inertia in terms of firm size and income levels. In addition, duration out of the formal labor market for those workers who become beneficiaries of the unemployment insurance program presents a mode around six months, the maximum duration of the program (until its reformulation in 2009). The document shows that survival rats are higher for women, older owrkers, employers and higher income workers. Also, workers in services (where the presence of the public sector is high) and in bigger firms also present higher survival rates.
