Abstract

We investigate the steady decline in aggregate unemployment rates in Korea since the 1960's. We argue that a pronounced decrease in the intensity of reallocation shocks, which resulted in a downward trend in the natural rate of unemployment, has been an important factor in this decline. Our claim is based on a structural searchmatching model, the times series of job-separation and job-finding rates, and sectoralshift measures that we construct from a micro data for the past three decades.
