Matching Function

Matching Function

The mathematical relationship between the number of unemployed persons who find jobs and the number of jobs available over time. It is used in the study of frictional unemployment, which is unemployment experienced by those who have lost their positions and are actively looking for another. See also: Christopher Pissarides.
