Mann 100

Abstract: Between 2000 and 2007 the U.S. experienced a period of unparalleled manufacturing decline, losing about 3 million jobs (about 1/6 of initial total industry employment) within the first five years. Using a local labor market approach, I examine whether and through what channels young adults adjust to this large adverse economic shock. I exploit spatial variation in pre-shock industrial structure and a one-time policy change as plausibly exogenous variations to identify the impact of manufacturing decline on various youth outcomes, including human capital investment, labor market transition, fertility and family formation, and geographic mobility.
