Abstract

We explore the macroeconomic effects of sectoral shifts for a set of 15 European countries. An extensive panel is constructed that allows us to assess the effect of labor reallocation in the European context. Indexes of labor market turbulence based on alternative sectoral disaggregation are constructed. The effect of labor reallocation on unemployment is found to be positive and significant in all different specifications. This remains robust when we consider measures of volatility in the model.
