Models of Linked Employer-Employee Data

Saturday, October 12, 2019

More dates through October 13, 2019

NYC - ILR Conference Center
570 Lexington Avenue, 12th Floor, New York, NY 10022

20 YEARS AFTER “HIGH WAGE WORKERS AND HIGH WAGE FIRMS”

In 1999, John Abowd, Francis Kramarz, and David Margolis published “High Wage Workers and High Wage Firms.” The model and econometric techniques were pioneering in the analysis of labor markets, and many other markets with high-dimensional interactions between two sides. The conference will celebrate the continuing influence of the AKM (1999) model and its foundational role in the analysis of labor markets using linked employer-employee data. The goal of the conference is to highlight the range of new questions for which the AKM decomposition provides an effective way to understand data. The conference will also focus attention on key econometric and modeling issues that are common to applications of AKM. The conference will be organized in sequential, themed, sessions over the span of two days. There will be both invited and submitted sessions, a keynote address, and an organized dinner.

A special issue with the Journal of Econometrics is planned.
