Journal of Labor Economics

Document type Web page


The first journal devoted specifically to labor economics, the Journal of Labor Economics has since 1983 presented international research on issues affecting the economy as well as social and private behavior. JOLE’s contributors investigate various aspects of labor economics, including supply and demand of labor services, personnel economics, distribution of income, unions and collective bargaining, applied and policy issues in labor economics, and labor markets and demographics. JOLE is the official journal of the Society of Labor Economists. Individual subscriptions are concurrent with membership in the society.
