A "New" Approach to Local Labor Market Analysis: A Feasibility Study.
Goldfarb, Robert; Hamermesh, Daniel
This report describes research on the New Haven labor market carried out during the summer and fall of 1969 and the spring of 1970. The aims of the research were to develop further the theoretical approach to micro-labor economics in a local labor market and to test the feasibility of collecting data from local firms which could be used to test and to extend the micro theory. The report is divided into three parts. In the first section analyses are presented of some of the data collected. The second section discusses some details of data collection. The last section presents a theoretical analysis of the way a firm might go about setting wages in a local labor market. (MS)
