Davis, S., and J.Haltiwanger,1992, “Gross Job Creation, Gross Job Destruction, and Employment Reallocation,” Quarterly Journal of Economics, Vol. 107, pp. 819–863.
Another line of literature that started with Davis and Haltiwanger (1992) looked into gross job creation together with gross job destruction using mainly firm-level data with a focus on the determinants of job reallocation and worker reallocation.
A sample period of a decade is chosen to ensure that what we captured is sustained employment creation, rather than one-off employment booms or cyclical swings.
Due to a small sample size and difficulties in passing the normality test for most variables, the usual t-test for whether two subsamples have the same mean cannot be applied here.
