Abstract

It is very well known that long unemployment duration is a factor wich contributes to explain the high unemployment rates in Spain, unemployment spells for married women deing partculary long. Unemployment duration analysis via stock sampling typically suffers from two sampling problems: right-censoring and length-bias. In this work we investigate unemployment duration for married women using new estimation methods wich jointly take account for both sampling issues. We report results separately for several spanish autonomous regions.
