On-the-job search and wage dispersion: New evidence from time use data

Andreas Mueller

Economics Letters, 2010, vol. 109, issue 2, 124-127

Abstract: This paper provides new evidence on time devoted to job search by the employed in the U.S. I find that search effort decreases with the current wage, with an elasticity between -0.7 and -1.3.
