SSASIM input table LABMRKT

Contains highest level description of the starting labor market and its dynamics, consisting of both assumption parameters and foreign keys pointing to rows in child tables. Each row specifies a different starting labor market and assumed dynamics, which can vary across time.

Parent table is: RUN

Child table is: LAB_DEL

Child table is: LABDYN

Go to SSASIM input parameters overview

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . id
Identifies set of labor market parameters specified on this row of table, so id value should be unique.

Valid values: 1 to 999999999 (nine digits), Integer

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . notes
Describes specification of table row in free-form note.

Valid values: any ASCII text (Note: do not copy and paste from a word processor because of the possibility of embedded non-ASCII characters.)

Source code: notes are not read by the model

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . fpr0
Specifies initial RUN.year_zero value of female labor force participation rate (fpr), which is one of model's stochastic variables whose future ultimate (or post-transition) values are determined by ASSUMP and child tables parameters (see above). Value of fpr0 is expressed as the log odds of female labor force participation rate. The log-odds transformation is used to ensure that the rate is always between zero and one.

Valid values: any, Real

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . fpr_kink
Specifies whether or not transition path from initial value of female labor force participation rate to its ultimate, post-transition values has a single kink (or bend) point or is linear (without a kink).

Valid values: T (=1) or F (=0) (for true or false), Logical

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . fpr_kvalue
Specifies fpr kink point value if fpr_kink is true. Value of fpr_kvalue is expressed as the log odds of female labor force participation rate in the kink year. If kink point is assumed, the fpr transition path is a linear interpolation from its initial year value to kink point value in every scenario. Scenario variation in transition path is restricted to years after fpr_kyear (see below) as fpr values are interpolated between fpr_kvalue and ultimate value of fpr, which is generated using ASSUMP and child tables parameters.

Valid values: any, Real

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . fpr_kyear
Specifies simulation year of fpr kink point value if fpr_kink is true.

Valid values: 1 to ( RUN.num_years - 1 ), Integer

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . mpr0
Specifies initial RUN.year_zero value of male labor force participation rate (mpr), which is one of model's stochastic variables whose future ultimate (or post-transition) values are determined by ASSUMP and child tables parameters (see above). Value of mpr0 is expressed as the log odds of male labor force participation rate. The log-odds transformation is used to ensure that the rate is always between zero and one.

Valid values: any, Real

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . mpr_kink
Specifies whether or not transition path from initial value of male labor force participation rate to its ultimate, post-transition values has a single kink (or bend) point or is linear (without a kink).

Valid values: T (=1) or F (=0) (for true or false), Logical

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . mpr_kvalue
Specifies mpr kink point value if mpr_kink is true. Value of mpr_kvalue is expressed as the log odds of male labor force participation rate in the kink year. If kink point is assumed, the mpr transition path is a linear interpolation from its initial year value to kink point value in every scenario. Scenario variation in transition path is restricted to years after mpr_kyear (see below) as mpr values are interpolated between mpr_kvalue and ultimate value of mpr, which is generated using ASSUMP and child tables parameters.

Valid values: any, Real

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . mpr_kyear
Specifies simulation year of mpr kink point value if mpr_kink is true.

Valid values: 1 to ( RUN.num_years - 1 ), Integer

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . unr0
Specifies initial RUN.year_zero value of unemployment rate (unr), which is one of model's stochastic variables whose future ultimate (or post-transition) values are determined by ASSUMP and child tables parameters (see above). Value of unr0 is expressed as the log odds of unemployment rate. The log-odds transformation is used to ensure that the rate is always between zero and one.

Valid values: any, Real

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . unr_kink
Specifies whether or not transition path from initial value of unemployment rate to its ultimate, post-transition values has a single kink (or bend) point or is linear (without a kink).

Valid values: T (=1) or F (=0) (for true or false), Logical

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . unr_kvalue
Specifies unr kink point value if unr_kink is true. Value of unr_kvalue is expressed as the log odds of unemployment rate in the kink year. If kink point is assumed, the unr transition path is a linear interpolation from its initial year value to kink point value in every scenario. Scenario variation in transition path is restricted to years after unr_kyear (see below) as unr values are interpolated between unr_kvalue and ultimate value of unr, which is generated using ASSUMP and child tables parameters.

Valid values: any, Real

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . unr_kyear
Specifies simulation year of unr kink point value if unr_kink is true.

Valid values: 1 to ( RUN.num_years - 1 ), Integer

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   LABMRKT . labdyn_id
Points to row(s) in child LABDYN table.

Valid values: 1 to 999999999 (nine digits), Integer
