On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the Unemployment data set which pertains to Unemployment Duration . The Unemployment data set is found in the Ecdat R package. You can load the Unemployment data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Unemployment"). This will load the data into a variable called Unemployment. If R says the Unemployment data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Ecdat") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the Unemployment R data set. The size of this file is about 22,480 bytes.
a cross-section from 1993
number of observations : 452
observation : individuals
country : United States
A dataframe containing :
duration of first spell of unemployment, t, in weeks
1 if spell is complete
one of nonwhite, white
one of male, female
reason for unemployment, one of new (new entrant), lose (job loser), leave (job leaver), reentr (labor force reentrant)
'yes' if (1) the unemployment spell is completed between the first and second surveys and number of methods used to search > average number of methods used across all records in the sample, or, (2) for individuals who remain unemployed for consecutive surveys, if the number of methods used is strictly nondecreasing at all survey points, and is strictly increasing at least at one survey point
'yes' if an individual used a public employment agency to search for work at any survey points relating to the individuals first unemployment spell
1 if an individual is searching for full time work at survey 1
1 if an individual is searching for full time work at survey 2
1 if an individual is searching for full time work at survey 3
1 if an individual is searching for full time work at survey 4
