The determinants of the employment structure



"This paper uses matched employee-employer LIAB data to provide panel estimates of the structure of labour demand in Germany, 1993-2002, distinguishing between highly skilled, skilled, and unskilled labour and between the manufacturing and service sectors. Reflecting current preoccupations, our demand analysis seeks also to accommodate the impact of technology and trade in addition to wages. The bottom-line interests are to provide elasticities of the demand for unskilled (and other) labour that should assist in short-run policy design and to identify the extent of skill biases or otherwise in trade and technology." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
