I am a stastics newbie, but sounds like an event history analysis (-stcox- and related) to me. If you change from job i to j in year t, and then job k in year t+a, you model characteristics of job i up to t-1, of job j from year t to t+a-1, of job k from year t+a on

>I am currently working on job transitions. I have paneldata of labour market positions of  individuals. Some of them enter a job from a position of unemployment, others have a job but change to another job, and the rest keeps the same job from t to t+1. My interest is in the influence of both personal characteristics as well as job characteristics on these transitions. I would expect that for those who change their job characteristics of their former job as well as their new job have an effect on the probability of a transition. For example one would expect that a wage improvement has a positve effect on making such a transition. The the point is that for those who do not change their job, characteristics of their potential new jobs are not observed.  I am not sure how to model this problem. Does anyone have suggestions?
