Abstract

The goal of this article is to present a review of the concepts related to worker and job flows, highlighting their similarities, differences and relations. We call into attention the difference between worker turnover and job reallocation and the best suited statistics for Brazilian databases. A survey of the literature on job flows closes the article. The main message from the literature is that job reallocation is remarkable, suggesting that at least 25% of available jobs in an economy are destroyed or created in a given year.
