  1. Notes: WHIP dataset. OLS (columns 1 to 3) and FE (columns 4 to 5) estimates. Unemployment at provincial level. Further controls: Dummies for regions of birth (21), sectors of work (9), years (10). Standard errors are allowed for within provincial correlation. The symbols ***, **, * indicate that coefficients are statistically significant, respectively, at the 1, 5, and 10 percent level.
