This study estimates the earnings losses of workers who lose their jobs in a plant closing. A unique data set was used: Social Security earnings records of over 9,000 workers employed in plants that actually closed. Separate estimates are made for workers by age and sex and the effects on losses of economic and demographic variables are also estimated. Alternative methodologies are discussed and used to estimate losses of workers who never work after the plant closing. (Author).
