Who are the unemployed? Evidence from the United Kingdom.

Moffat, J. and Yoo, H. I. (2015) 'Who are the unemployed? Evidence from the United Kingdom.', Economics letters., 132 . pp. 61-64.


Using the UK Labour Force Survey 2005–2012, we analyse heterogeneity among non-employment subgroups in future employment hazards. Based on the results, we propose alternative measures of unemployment that include out-of-the-labour-force subgroups with similar or higher hazards to the officially unemployed.
