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.

The matching function captures the statistical relationship between the job-finding rate and labor market tightness, which is defined as the ratio between the number of job openings and the number of unemployed jobseekers; the fewer jobseekers per opening, the tighter the market.
The aggregate search and matching function in macro-labor models describes the "production" of hires as a function of the stocks of job seekers and vacancies and an exogenous shift term denoting the aggregate efficiency of the matching process.

The new software continues a focus on streamlined functionality and ease-of-use as it features single button measurements and has made the unique spectrum matching function an optional approach (turned on or off by the user).
In this article, I show how the labor market matching function approach developed by Pissarides (1985) and Mortensen and Pissarides (1994) can be used to assess the validity of the proposition that recent trends in vacancies and unemployment necessarily point to a diminished role for monetary policy.
