Abstract: 
The classical Salant-condition for the comparison of the mean interrupted spell length of the stock of unemployed and the mean completed spell length of the corresponding flow can be substantially weakened: for a NWUE [New Worse than Used in Expectation] distribution the former is greater than the latter, and the reverse is true for a NBUE [New Better than Used in Expectation] distribution. Analogous results for the coefficient of variation and the Gini-index are established.
