|The Lot of the Unemployed: A Time Use Perspective
|Krueger, Alan B.
|Working Papers (Princeton University. Industrial Relations Section) ; 524
|This paper provides new evidence on time use and subjective well-being of employed and unemployed individuals in 14 countries. We devote particular attention to characterizing and modeling job search intensity, measured by the amount of time devoted to searching for a new job. Job search intensity varies considerably across countries, and is higher in countries that have higher wage dispersion. We also examine the relationship between unemployment benefits and job search.
