Unemployment and labour force participation in Japan

Makoto Kakinaka and Hiroaki Miyamoto

Applied Economics Letters, 2012, vol. 19, issue 11, 1039-1043

Abstract: This article studies a long-run relationship between the labour-force participation rate and the unemployment rate in Japan. By using cointegration analysis, we demonstrate that there exists a long-run relationship between the two variables for male workers but not for female workers. Furthermore, using labour-force data by age group, we find the added-worker effect for young males and the discouraged-worker effect for middle-aged and old male groups.
