Economics Letters, 2015, vol. 132, issue C, 61-64

Abstract: Using the UK Labour Force Survey 2005–2012, we analyse heterogeneity among non-employment subgroups in future employment hazards. Based on the results, we propose alternative measures of unemployment that include out-of-the-labour-force subgroups with similar or higher hazards to the officially unemployed.
