Taken from rear cover ..... '"Developments in Research Methods and their Application" (volume 4A) summarizes recent advances in the ways economists study wages, employment, and labor markets. Mixing conceptual models and empirical work, contributors cover subjects as diverse as field and laboratory experiments, program evaluation, and behavioral models. The combinations of these improved empirical findings with new models reveal how labor economists are developing new and innovative ways to measure key parameters and test important hypotheses.
- Investigates recent advances in methods and models used in labor economics
- Demonstrates what these new tools and techniques can accomplish
- Documents how conceptual models and empirical work explain important practical issues.'
Review ..... "Volume 4 very nicely illustrates several important trends in labor economics:increased concern about proper research design, more contact with those in other social sciences, greater reliance on data collected by those conducting the research, and (in some areas) more productive interplay between theory and data. The authors have themselves been major contributors to these developments; they combine a participants enthusiasm with a detached perspective on the challenges and gaps that remain." - Charles brown, University of Michigan.
