  1. Note: Rows show the status of job benefit in the previous job, while columns show the status of job benefit in the current job. Panel (a) covers contracts and indicates whether the job included a written contract, a verbal contract, or no contract, or was non-wage work (self-employment/family worker). Panel (b) covers notice, and indicates whether the job included a termination notice or not, or was non-wage work. Each cell shows the probability that a worker who leaves a previous job with a certain benefit status (given by row headings) transitions to a new job with a certain benefit status (given by column headings). We excluded the “do not know” category for previous job benefit status. Sampling weights are applied
