''Further Evidence on the Dynamics of Unemployment by Gender''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.4 )
We present empirical evidence regarding differences in unemployment dynamics across gender for a group of twenty-three OECD countries. Our results indicate that there are substantial differences in the unemployment persistence for men and women across countries. Further, the female unemployment rates are relatively more persistent compared to the male unemployment rates.
