Measurement Error and the Estimation of Labor Supply Functions from Panel Data

A model in which the household's utility depends on the level of the composite good produced in each period with inputs of husband's and wife's home time and market goods is developed. Given the full wealth budget constraint, two wage elasticities are derived. The elasticity of an individual's labor supply with respect to a one period change in his own wage includes substitution in consumption across periods, substitution of his home time for other inputs to household production within the period, and a small wealth effect. The labor supply elasticity with respect to a permanent change in the wage in all periods includes only within period substitution and a large wealth effect. Thus the temporary elasticity is predicted to be more positive than the permanent wage elasticity, and presumably larger than zero.

This article examined the effects of several personal and labor market characteristics of the individual on hourly wages and feelings of locus of control, as measured by an abbreviated version of Rotter's internal-external locus of control scale. Responses from 976 young men, taken from the Young Men's cohort of the NLS, were studied. Internal-external control was found to affect hourly wages independent of other factors such as educational attainment, labor market experience, race, and collective bargaining affiliation. Internal-external locus of control is affected by labor market success, race, and city size. [(c)APA]

The Exit-Voice Tradeoff in the Labor Market: Unionism, Job Tenure, Quits and Separations
Discussion Paper [Mimeo], Harvard Institute of Economic Research, Havard University, Cambridge MA, 1977
Cohort(s): Older Men
Publisher: unknown
Keyword(s): Behavior; Grievance System; Job Tenure; Job Turnover; Layoffs; Quits; Unions

This paper examines the effect of trade unionism on the exit behavior of workers in the context of Hirschman's exit-voice dichotomy. Unionism is expected to reduce quits and permanent separations and raise job tenure by providing a "voice" alternative to exit when workers are dissatisfied with conditions. Empirical evidence supports this contention, showing significantly lower exit for unionists in several large data tapes. It is argued that the grievance system plays a major role in the reduction in exit and that the reduction lowers cost and raises productivity.

Longitudinal Analyses of Training Processes in the United States
Presented: Urbana, IL, Rupert P. Evans Symposium on Vocational Education, 1982
Cohort(s): NLSY79, Young Men
Publisher: unknown

Longitudinal data provide a clearer picture of the decentralized training system in the U.S. Flows of youth can be partitioned into various categories of training and work experience immediately prior to entering the work force. Groups can be identified which are absorbed quite slowly into paid employment. Subsequent to entering the work world, training records are accurately compiled through longitudinal files yielding better information on the complexity of training processes and the benefits associated with various combinations of training methods. Finally, longitudinal records of work experience permit analysis of irregular working patterns and allow researchers to assess the costs associated with temporary labor force withdrawal. Each of these uses of longitudinal data has been illustrated through the studies that are summarized in this report.

A Woman in the Labor Force: Factors Affecting Both Her Labor Force Decision and the Time She is Willing to Supply in the Labor Market
M.S. Thesis, The Oklahoma State University, 1974
Cohort(s): Mature Women
Publisher: unknown
Keyword(s): Labor Force Participation; Socioeconomic Status (SES); Variables, Independent - Covariate; Work Hours

Permission to reprint the abstract has not been received from the publisher.

This study analyzes a woman's labor force decision and the time she is willing to supply to the labor force once she decides to participate. Three models were developed: a labor force participation model (to determine how various factors affect the probability that a woman will enter the labor force); a supply of working time model (to determine the change in a woman's time at home--in the labor force--due to various factors); and an income differential model (to analyze how factors affect the incomes of working women). Each model includes social and economic factors as well as residence categories as independent variables. Place of residence does not significantly influence a woman's labor force participation decision, but a higher wage is needed in SMSA - nonfarm areas to entice a woman there to supply the same number of work hours as one residing in a non SMSA - nonfarm area. The income of a woman living in a non SMSA - nonfarm area is 82 percent that of a woman who resides in an SMSA - nonfarm area.

Logit Analysis for Determinants of Higher Education
Presented: New Delhi, India, International Statistical Conference, December 1977
Cohort(s): Older Men
Publisher: unknown
Keyword(s): College Education; College Enrollment; Educational Returns; Modeling, Logit

Permission to reprint the abstract has not been received from the publisher.

Using logit analysis of the NLS Men's cohort, the author shows that opportunity cost, financial aid and quality of high school attended are important variables in determining the demand for higher education in the United States. Further analysis appears to be needed to explore the importance of other factors in determining their influence upon the demand for higher education in the United States.

Improved Job Information: Its Impact on Long Run Labor Market Experience
Presented: Philadelphia, PA, Conference on Improving Labor Market Information for Youths, 1974
Cohort(s): Young Men
Publisher: unknown
Keyword(s): Job Search; Socioeconomic Status (SES); Unemployment; Vocational Education; Work Knowledge

Permission to reprint the abstract has not been received from the publisher.

The concept of "job information" is explored in terms of the extent to which young workers have adequate labor market knowledge and the factors that appear to be related to variations therein. Evidence is presented on the relationship between how much male youth know about the labor market at one point in time and the wages and occupational assignments they are subsequently able to command.
