Comment on: Suzanne Duryea, Gustavo Márquez, Carmen Pagés, and Stefano Scarpetta, who review evidence on labor market mobility in nine countries. Three countries come from Latin America, while the remainder are transition economies in Eastern Europe. The period of study ranges from as little as two years to eleven years. The paper uses longitudinal labor force survey data to construct a transition matrix for each country. The authors consider six possible labor force outcomes: out of the labor force, unemployed, formal salaried worker, informal salaried worker, self-employed, and farmer.
