The Employment Effects of Minimum Wages: Evidence From a Prespecified Research Design

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Neumark, David. 2001. "The Employment Effects of Minimum Wages: Evidence From a Prespecified Research Design." Industrial Relations, 40(1): 121-144.

This article presents evidence on the employment effects of recent minimum wage increases from a prespecified research design that entailed committing to a detailed set of statistical analyses prior to "going to" the data. The limited data to which the prespecified research design can be applied may preclude finding many significant effects. Nonetheless, the evidence is most consistent with disemployment effects of minimum wages for younger, less-skilled workers.
