In this paper we simultaneously analyze transitions from unemployment to employment and to nonparticipation. We estimate a dependent competing risks model with nonparametric specifications of the destination-specific duration dependence and unobserved heterogeneity terms. We use a unique population data set of French unemployment over the period 1988-1994, stratified by gender type, duration class and exit state.
