Abstract / Description of output

The number of empirical studies in personnel economics using administrative data has grown rapidly in recent years. We survey the use of administrative data to examine employment contracts. Specifically, we consider three types of data that have been widely used in empirical studies: historical firm-level records, contemporary firm-level records and national matched employer–employee records. Studies using this sort of administrative data have shed considerable light on the nature of employment relationships.
