Prochain séminaire du GAINS

Le prochain séminaire du GAINS a lieu le 7 mars de 10h30 à 12h00 (à distance). 


Marie Aurélie LAPIERRE (Université Lumière Lyon 2 & GATE-LSE) présentera un papier intitulé Neighbourhood effects and Job search behaviours co-écrit avec Florence GOFFETTE-NAGOT (GATE-LSE).



Abstract : This paper aims to test for the influence of interactions with neighbours on the job search behaviours of unemployed individuals. Using data from the 2014-2019 French Labour Force Surveys (INSEE) that allows to identify two nested levels of very precise neighbourhoods, we implement a model of endogenous (how the average behaviour of neighbours impacts individual's behaviour) and contextual effects (how neighbours' characteristics impact individual's behaviour) à la Manski (1993) applied to different job search methods and intensity. We control for location endogeneity in a similar way as in Bayer, Ross and Topa (2008) and tackle the reflection issue through the use of non-linear estimation techniques and specific computational methods for the social interaction variables. We find evidence of endogenous peer effects for most of the job search methods with a negative impact of having unemployed neighbours counterbalanced by a strong positive effect of their search intensity. We also find some contextual effects with regards to the share of neighbours in high-level occupations for total search intensity and search through networks. These results underline the importance of having neighbours highly connected to the labour market in return to employment and suggest that social interaction effects regarding job search could amplify labour market inequalities across neighbourhoods.
