Abstract: We explore data from all transition economies over nearly two decades, providing insights on the mechanisms behind labor force reallocation. We show that worker ows between jobs in dierent industries are rare relative to the demographic ows of youth entry and elderly exit. The same applies to the ows between state-owned enterprises and private rms. In fact, evidence suggest that changes in the demand for labor were accommodated mostly through demographic ows, with a smaller role left for job transitions. We also show that the speed of changing the ownership structure in the economy has driven exits to retirement, in particular the early exits.
