A higher job creation is a common result by many theoretical approaches trying to model marginal labor market reforms. In the frame-work proposed by Berton and Garibaldi , in particular, the equilibrium arrival rate of temporary job offers is expected to be higher than the arrival rate of permanent ones. In this paper the author uses a sample of prime aged male workers from WHIP in a competing risks framework in order to compare the duration of unemployment spells terminated by jobs that only differ in their formal duration. The author finds that the arrival rate of fixed term jobs is actually larger than the arrival rate of permanent ones; this result is robust to the main sources of unobserved heterogeneity.
