Establishment structure, job flows and rural employment

Rural employment: an international perspective: 239-254

Establishment structure, job flows and rural employment

The gross flow of jobs into and out of regional labour markets numerically exceeds by many times the net employment change in the same period. There are systematically different regional patterns of change based on variation in establishment structure and behaviour. The average size of establishments differs among types of regions as well as among countries. Small establishments are prevalent in all types of regions, with only a slight relative predominance in rural regions.
