Exploring Labor Market Issues through the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity

Grant Year: 2015

Janice Eberly and James Stock will lead an effort to examine the state of the American labor market and assess how short-term weaknesses and long-term trends affect both the material wellbeing of employees and the vibrancy of the U.S. economy as a whole. They will commission research and edit papers from leading economists on key labor market issues, such as the labor-force participation rate of less-educated individuals and the ways changing family structure is affecting the labor market. The papers will appear in a peer-reviewed journal, The Brookings Papers on Economic Activity.
