Parent table is: LABDYN

There are no child tables.

Go to SSASIM input parameters overview

SSASIM:   UNR_GA . id
Identifies set of female and male unemployment rates by age. Because rates typically vary by age, there will be many rows with the same id value.

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

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   UNR_GA . 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:   UNR_GA . age
Specifies age for which unemployment rates on this row refers. Rates for ages without a row are assumed to be zero.

Valid values: 0 to 125, Integer

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   UNR_GA . female
Specifies female unemployment rate for age specified on this row. Rate is expressed in percentage (not decimal) terms. Note that this rate will be normalized (using the internally calculated labor force by age) so that all the weighted gender- and age-specific rates will produce a value for the aggregate unemployment rate equal to that generate by the aggregate unemployment rate assumptions specified in the TRND_MV table.

Valid values: 0.0 to 100.0, Real

Source code: labmrkt.h and labmrkt.cpp

SSASIM:   UNR_GA . male
Specifies male unemployment rate for age specified on this row. Rate is expressed in percentage (not decimal) terms. Note that this rate will be normalized (using the internally calculated labor force by age) so that all the weighted gender- and age-specific rates will produce a value for the aggregate unemployment rate equal to that generate by the aggregate unemployment rate assumptions specified in the TRND_MV table.

Valid values: 0.0 to 100.0, Real
