Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper examines the importance of job access in explaining labor market outcomes for youth. The work sets forth a broader definition of 'access' which emphasizes the information links provided by social networks. Empirical analysis, based upon micro data from the public use sample and upon metropolitan wide aggregates, indicates that employment probabilities for black youth are significantly related to these measures of labor market access.
