EMPLOYMENT AND EARNINGS OF THE WORKING POOR IN RURAL AND URBAN LABOR MARKETS

Elizabeth E. Davis and Bruce A. Weber

No 35665, 1999 Annual Meeting, July 11-14, 1999, Fargo, ND from Western Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: We use a unique administrative database to analyze the impact of labor market conditions on the employment outcomes of working poor adults in Oregon. Stronger labor demand conditions are associated with better employment outcomes. Lower earnings and less steady employment in rural areas are largely explained by higher unemployment rates.
