---- Acknowledgements ----

The Hoover Institution supported Hall's research. The research is also part of the NBER's Economic Fluctuations and Growth Program. We thank Suyoun Han for excellent research assistance and Christopher Nekarda for sharing his Stata code for longitudinal matching of observations in the Current Population Survey. We have benefited from comments from the editor, referees, and numerous conference and seminar participants, especially Steve Davis, who also provided us with the measures of vacancy duration and recruiting intensity from his work with Jason Faberman and John Haltiwanger, updated. A previous version of this paper was written while Schulhofer-Wohl was employed at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. The views expressed here are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the National Bureau of Economic Research, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, or the Federal Reserve System. Emails: re- hall@stanford.edu and sam@frbchi.org. Data and program files for replicating our work are available at Hall's website, stanford.edu/~rehall
