Research in Labor Economics


"Research in Labor Economics" focuses on various aspects of labor markets and how these markets affect our well-being. As such, this volume contains eleven chapters: three on labor supply, directly dealing with various aspects of the participation decision; two on human capital, the accumulation of worker skills; three directly on employee earnings; and three on the distribution of earnings throughout society.
