 Title: The Determinants of Queues for Federal Jobs Authors: Krueger, Alan B. Keywords: queuefederal governmentapplications Issue Date: 1-Oct-1987 Citation: Industrial and Labor Relations Review, vol 41, no 4, July 1988 Series/Report no.: Working Papers (Princeton University. Industrial Relations Section) ; 227 Abstract: This paper examines the determinants of outside applicants for federal job openings using a variety of time-series, cross-sectional and panel data sets. The main finding is that the application rate for government jobs increases as the ratio of federal to private sector earnings increases, but does not appear to be related to the relative level of fringe benefits. Furthermore, an increase in the federal-private sector earnings differential is associated with an increase in the average quality of applicants for federal jobs. The paper discusses the implications of these findings for wage determination and recruitment in the federal government.
