Abstract:
This dissertation is composed of three self-contained papers addressing specific research quest ions in distinct topics in applied labor economics. The first paper is joint work with my advisors. It makes a methodological point on the estimation of matching functions and shows its quantitative importance with an application to the United States (US) labor market. The second paper is joint work with two fellow doctoral students at the University of Bristol. It develops and estimates a search and matching model of the labor market to replicate stylized facts pertaining to racial discrimination in the US labor market. The third paper is sole-authored. It documents new facts concerning the role of part-time jobs in the macroeconomic employment adjustment in the United Kindgom's labor market during the Great Recession.
