Description :
The effect of poor local labour market opportunities on occupational achievement is an important aspect of the spatial mismatch hypothesis. The discouraged worker effect is defined as the decision to refrain from job search as a result of poor chances on the labour market. The empirical findings, based on the Netherlands surveys (1994-97), show that discouragement can enter the job search process both at the stage of deciding to enter the labour force and at the stage of deciding to engage actively in a job search.
