Labor Flow Data for 6 Latin American countries

Constructed by researchers at the Inter-American Development Bank. The data is available at the ISIC-2-digit sector level for Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Uruguay from 1978 to 2001.

See this page for details and downloading the data.

Used by Francisco A. Gallego and Jose A. Tessada (2007) "Sudden Stops and Reallocation: Evidence from Labor Market Flows in Latin America" to estimate the impact of financial crises on job creation and destruction.
