The Contribution of Employment Separation to Teenage Unemployment

W. F. Foster and Robert Gregory ()

The Economic Record, 1982, vol. 58, issue 2, 118-133

Abstract: In this paper we analyze the relationship between labour market flows and the unemployment rate of teenagers compared to males aged 25–54 years. For 1979–80 teenagers separated from employment at approximately five times the rate of adult males and this was the principal factor associated with their high rate of unemployment. Job‐finding success from unemployment and from outside the labour force is approximately the same for each labour market group. A special feature is the analysis of gross flows between full‐time and part‐time employment. Labour market flows involving part‐time employment account for little of the unemployment rate difference.
