Moffat, J. & Yoo, H. I. (2015). Who are the unemployed? Evidence from the United Kingdom. Economics Letters 132: 61-64.

Author(s) from Durham


Using the UK Labour Force Survey 2005–2012, we analyse heterogeneity among non-employment subgroups in future employment hazards. Based on the results, we propose alternative measures of unemployment that include out-of-the-labour-force subgroups with similar or higher hazards to the officially unemployed.
