Job Duration in the Netherlands: The Co-existence of High Turnover and Permanent Job Attachment

Maarten Lindeboom () and Jules Theeuwes

Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, 1991, vol. 53, issue 3, 243-64

Abstract: The authors' major concern is the distribution of job durations in the Netherlands. They specify a competing risk model in which job to job transitions are distinguished from transitions to other labor market states. Within each subhazard special attention is paid to differences between part-time jobs and full-time jobs. Prominent differences are found between the subhazards of the competing risk model. A test indicates that these differences are statistically significant. The picture that emerges from job attachment (mostly males in full-time jobs) co-existing with a high degree of high turnover (mostly females working in part-time jobs). In their estimation procedure they propose solutions and tests for the problem of grouped observations, unobserved heterogeneity and attrition. Copyright 1991 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
