Data are transition probabilities of moving across full-time employment, voluntary part-time employment, involuntary part-time employment, unemployment, and nonparticipation. Data are calculated at the monthly frequency and cover U.S. workers over the period from 1976 until 2019. The content of each *_baseline MS Excel data file is as follows: time series of seasonally adjusted stocks (normalized by the corresponding population size), and time-series of seasonally adjusted transition probabilities, corrected for margin error and time aggregation bias. The content of each *_reclassified MS Excel data file is identical, but transition probabilities are in addition adjusted for potentially spurious transitions.
