Accounting for Mismatch Unemployment

Benedikt Herz and Thijs van Rens ()

No 12972, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: We investigate unemployment due to mismatch in the United States over the past three and a half decades. We propose an accounting framework that allows us to estimate the contribution of each of the frictions that generated labor market mismatch. Barriers to job mobility account for the largest part of mismatch unemployment, with a smaller role for barriers to worker mobility. We find little contribution of wage-setting frictions to mismatch.
