Labor Market Turnover and Joblessness for Hispanic American Youth.
Stephenson, Stanley P., Jr.
Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth's continuous work history files, this paper examines how individual and market characteristics influence the unemployment rates of Hispanic youth. The results show that family income, marital status, post-school vocational education, age, and local unemployment rates significantly influence unemployment, especially among women. Hispanic youth joblessness rates are found to be quite high, between 30 percent and 40 percent, due primarily to relatively long spells of nonwork after a job loss. Sex differences in labor turnover results are also found, primarily due to the fact that female nonwork duration is nearly 50 percent longer than that of young Hispanic males. (CMG)
