RURAL EMPLOYMENT GROWTH IN THE 'NEW ECONOMY': A TEST OF THE SPATIAL DIVISION OF LABOR HYPOTHESIS
Timothy Richard Wojan
1998 Annual meeting, August 2-5, Salt Lake City, UT from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)
Decomposing the occupational structure of rural and urban labor markets allows assessing whether these structures became more alike or more dissimilar between 1970 and 1990. A shift-share method is used to compute 'predicted' and 'specialized' shares for 9 inclusive occupations. A SUR model is used to estimate the convergence process.
