trenchment in many countries, and displaced workers often suffer important welfare losses. Governments have used a variety of mechanisms to address the political and social costs of large-scale displacements, including employment guarantees, retraining programs, job search assistance for displaced workers, and severance pay. of estimating earnings losses for displaced workers. However, our empirical work as-sesses the magnitude and pattern of those losses only for workers displaced in Pennsyl-vania during the early and mid's. We have limited our analysis to these workers in order to take advantage of a rich set of administrative data on Pennsylvanian work-ers. Social Security measures work and earnings by assigning credits to a worker's record. The amount needed for a credit changes from year to year. In , for example, you earn one credit for each $1, of wages or self-employment income.   In contrast, Probit 2 estimates too many workers as displaced, leading to underestimation of wage loss. Identifying displaced workers in the German social security file (IAB) The probit specification (IV) was used to predict displacement status on the sample of all male workers in the IAB sample who became unemployed in a single year,

That paper and this paper share many themes, including a robust quantitative explanation for the earn-ings losses of displaced workers, the decomposition of lost earnings into reduced.
