Regional variations in the competitiveness of unemployed job-seekers and the rate of outflows from unemployment.

By M. T. Robson

Abstract

The paper examines the role of variations in the competitiveness of unemployed jobseekers in leading to regional variations in the rate of outflows from unemployment, and attempts to identify the factors responsible for regional variations in the share of new hires captured by the unemployed. The paper's empirical analysis suggests that the duration structure of unemployment, measured by the rate of inflows into unemployment relative to the beginning of period stock, is the primary determinant of the competitiveness of a region's unemployed job-seekers
