This research builds on some recent work by Abraham and Barber, Altonji and Shakotko, and Topei to develop and estimate empirical wage models which focus on general labour market experience and specific job tenure effects in the face of omitted individual, job, and match heterogeneity. The models are estimated for young, white workers from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth. Tenure effects are found to be smaller and experience effects somewhat larger under the alternative estimation procedures as compared to ordinary least squares estimates. OLS procedures thus appear to misallocate the portions of wage growth associated with tenure and experience, overstate the total effect, and also confuse gender patterns for these key wage equation variables. Tenure and experience are left with a relatively small role to play in the gender wage gap for this sample of workers. Methods and findings are compared with those of the other researchers.

This paper reports the results of an empirical investigation of the job turnover patterns of younger male and female workers which uses a continuous-time competing risk hazard model approach and National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) data. We find general similarity in the quit behaviour of the men and women in our sample with respect to key job characteristics such as wages and accumulated job tenure, while individual characteristics such as marital status and fertility have very small effects on quits. We also find that turnover behaviour is significantly different for quits and layoffs, thus validating our competing risk approach.
