  1. Note: Standard errors are corrected for autocorrelation using Newey-West procedure. ***, **, * denote statistical significance at 1, 5, and 10 % levels, respectively (t-statistics in parenthesis). The effect of job vacancy if CRISIS = 1 is the non-linear combination: Job vacancy rate + job vacancy rate*CRISIS (z-statistic in parenthesis). The effect of job vacancy conditional on EPL is the non-linear combination: Job vacancy rate + Job vacancy rate*EPL (z-statistics in parenthesis). The effect of job vacancy conditional on EPL if CRISIS = 1 is the non-linear combination: Job vacancy rate + Job vacancy rate*EPL + job vacancy rate*CRISIS + job vacancy rate*CRISIS*EPL (z-statistics in parethesis). The effect of job vacancy conditional on EPL if CRISIS = 0 is the non-linear combination: Job vacancy rate + Job vacancy rate*EPL (z-statistics in parenthesis)
