Abstract: Using data from the Polish Labor Force Survey for 1995-2015 we construct measures of worker flows and inquire their cyclical properties as a way to test the predictions of structural change/transition theories regarding the reallocation process that took place in Eastern European and FSU countries. This process has two features: the decline in public sector employment combined with an increase in private sector employment and the reallocation of labor from manufacturing to service sector. We find that labor market adjustments tend to amplify in upturns of the business cycle, while worker flows contribute only a fraction to the changing structure of employment.
