Abstract: The first part of this paper estimates a set of stochastic processes with increasing generality to capture these salient features of earnings dynamics to provide a reliable "user's guide" for applied economists. In the second part, we examine if these documented features can be explained in a standard job ladder model with learning about match quality and depreciation of skills during unemployment.
