- Discussion Papers 
This paper is concerned with econometric problems and methods involved in estimating duration models using data on incomplete unemployment spells provided by standard labor force surveys. In particular it considers how the model estimates are affected by the commonly applied assumption of stationary inflow rates, also in models which account for the effect of unobserved heterogeneity.
