Abstract

Using state- and provincial-level data this study assesses why U.S. labor markets have recently performed relatively better than their Canadian counterparts. The empirical results indicate that more rapid U.S. unemployment growth explains a relatively small proportion of its lower joblesness. Structural causes including lower U.S. unionization and less generous unemployment insurance appear to be more important, at least in the long run. The Canadian labour market also appears to be less flexible to regional economic shocks
