The Turnover of Teachers: A Competing Risks Explanation

Peter Dolton and Wilbert van der Klaauw ()

The Review of Economics and Statistics, 1999, vol. 81, issue 3, 543-550

Abstract: In this paper, we analyze the decision by teachers to leave the profession in a dependent competing risks framework. The econometric model allows for a flexible, semiparametric specification of the duration-dependence structure and of the unobserved heterogeneity distribution in each exit-specific hazard function. Our results obtained for a large sample of UK teachers affirm the importance of teacher salaries and opportunity wages in the turnover decision of teachers and illustrate the insight gained from differentiating between multiple destinations or exit types. © 1999 by the President and Fellows of Harvard College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
