Abstract:

A study of the movement of workers among various industrial aggregates in the U.S. is given. The model assumes that each worker is either a mover or a stayer, that stayers do not move, and that the movement of movers can be described by a particular kind of probability process, a Markov chain. A study is given of the problems of estimating the parameters in this model and of testing various hypotheses concerning it. Author
