Job Mobility and Wage Dynamics

Valérie Smeets ()

Abstract: Using a dataset covering the population of Danish private-sector

workers, I analyze the relationship between job changes and wage

dynamics. I …nd that the number of past job changes is positively

related to wages. This result is consistent with the idea that workers

changing …rms end up with better matches than workers who do not

change …rms. The main …ndings are veri…ed using the U.S. NLSY panel

data, implying that they can not be attributed to the peculiarities of

the Danish labor market

Keywords: Worker turnover; wages; matching; human capital; matched employer-employee data; (follow links to similar papers)
