''Migration and unemployment duration in OECD countries: A dynamic panel analysis''
( 2012, Vol. 32 No.2 )
This paper examines whether immigration has a positive influence on the duration of unemployment from a macroeconomic perspective. The integration of immigrants into the labor market is a recurrent topic in literature on the economic consequences of immigration, and it is a central concern to policy makers. However, to our knowledge, few researchers have studied the impact of immigration on the duration of unemployment. By using panel estimations (OLS and GMM), we show that migration seems to influence short–term unemployment positively and long-term unemployment negatively for 14 OECD destination countries.
Keywords: international migration, unemployment duration, OECD countries, panel data
