URL :  Post-Recession US Employment
Author : Menzie Chinn - Laurent Ferrara - Valérie Mignon
Detail : eBook Edition: 2013
 
This paper aims at investigating the relationship between employment and GDP in the United States. We disentangle trend and cyclical employment components by estimating a non-linear Okun’s law based on a smooth transition error-correction model that simultaneously accounts for long-term relationships between growth and employment and short-run instability over the business cycle. Our findings based on out-of-sample conditional forecasts show that, since the exit of the 2008-09 recession, US employment is on average around 1% below the level implied by the long run outputemployment relationship, meaning that about 1.2 million of the trend employment loss cannot be attributed to the identified cyclical factors.
