dc.description.abstractUsing Polish Labour Force Survey data, we examine whether competition for labour hasinduced individual pay to depend on outside options, availability and quality of jobs.Exploiting the lack of inter-regional job and worker flows we estimate the elasticity ofindividual pay, amongst a rich set of individual characteristics, to be approximately -0.1 forlocal unemployment (job shortages) and + 0.1 for local job reallocation (restructuring).Variations in local labour market conditions explain approximately 50 per cent of thedifferences in expected individual earnings across regions, while differences in inheritedhuman capital and occupation structures explain the rest.en_US
