This paper reports the results of an empirical investigation of the job turnover patterns of younger male and female workers which uses a continuous-time competing risk hazard model approach and National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) data. We find general similarity in the quit behaviour of the men and women in our sample with respect to key job characteristics such as wages and accumulated job tenure, while individual characteristics such as marital status and fertility have very small effects on quits. We also find that turnover behaviour is significantly different for quits and layoffs, thus validating our competing risk approach.
