We evaluated each of these propositions using data on black, Latino, and white workers, separately for women and men, drawn from the MCSUI.
The MCSUI interviewers rated the English speaking ability above good or better for 12 of the 13 high-achieving respondents who lived abroad at 16 years of age; six of these individuals had "excellent" English speaking ability.
The MCSUI data contain detailed information on firm and job characteristics and, most important for the purpose of this article, indicators of the recruitment methods these employers used when hiring the most recently hired worker.
In this article I provide analogous information from the MCSUI data.
This implication would appear to be untestable, because the MCSUI data contain only starting wages, not offered wages.
Although this correlation matrix answers the simple question of which methods tend to be bundled together in the cross-section, the MCSUI sample represents a highly diverse group of employers and jobs.
In the MCSUI data the unconditional means of vacancy duration for the most recent hire (measured in weeks) are displayed in Table 5, by the recruitment method that generated the most recently hired worker.
