L'appariement de l'offre et de la demande sur les marchés locaux du travail : une comparaison entre espaces ruraux et espaces urbains

Abstract : We compare rural and urban labour markets in order to check the impact of density on labour markets when firms are heterogeneous in their job requirements and workers are heterogeneous in their skills. Using the results of a survey carried out in the French Midi-Pyrénées region, we analyze how, for comparable firm sizes and sectors, location influences matching between potential job seekers and offerers. We propose here to focus on local labour markets density to analyze its impact on recruitment difficulties experienced by firms and their consequences on manpower turnover. Our basic idea is that in less dense markets, and therefore in rural areas, the probability for an employer to find a suitable employee should be lower because agents’ heterogeneity translates into a reduction in the diversity of job seekers’ skills and specializations and of firms’ job requirements.
