  1. Notes: All models include race, foreign-born, geographical, education, occupation, age, cohort, and sector dummies, as well as controls for the unemployment rate in the survey year and the sector experience. Statistical significance is represented by * for p<0.10, ** for p<0.05, and *** for p<0.01. Standard errors are clustered at the sector-wave level. All models report the marginal effects of logit regressions
