The relationship between event history and discrete time duration models: an application to the analysis of personnel absenteeism
Employee absenteeism has been studied using a model that combines event history and duration of the problem. The data considered as event history were employees' daily absence records. The data were analyzed for gender differences as well as employment status and level. Findings show that women employees exceed their male counterparts in terms of quantity and duration of absences. Higher level employees, on the other hand, were found to have less number of absences. Duration of absences, however, were similar to lower level employees.

Computation of Nash-bargained models of household labour supply
The derivation of a technique for recovering the structural parameters of a Nash-bargained model of household labor supply is accomplished through a numerical rather than analytical calculation of the desired hours of labor supply to eliminate the need for analytical tractability. The value obtained is then embedded on a conventional maximum-likelihood estimation to determine structural preference parameters. Application to the 1984 Family Expenditure Survey is discussed.

Analysing absence behaviour using event history models
Managers need to assess the effect of employee absenteeism on potential production. A Markov model is used to analyze data on employee absenteeism and it's effect on both existing and potential personnel policies.
