MPRC Seminar: Storms and Jobs: The Effect of Hurricanes on Individuals' Employment and Earnings Over the Long Term

Speaker: Jeffrey Groen, Research Economist, Bureau of Labor Statistics About the Talk: We study the responsiveness of individuals employment and earnings to the damages and disruption caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which struck the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005. Our analysis is based on individual-level survey and administrative data that tracks workers over time - from 2 years before the storms to 7 years after the storms. We estimate models that compare outcomes for individuals who resided (at the time of the storms) in storm-affected areas with individuals who resided in an unaffected control region along the Atlantic coast. {Will appear in FYI on Jan 30, 2014
