"Individual Heterogeneity and Interindustry
Wage Differentials." Journal of Human Resources, Winter 1993, 134-61.
The GRIT technique estimates interindustry
flows by applying an employment-based cross-industry location quotient to the corresponding elements of the nati onal matrix.
It can be further confined to a single distribution center if necessary, says Joe Andraski, chairman of the Voluntary Interindustry

Using the 1977 wave of the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, Neal (1993) finds no evidence in support of the idea that interindustry

Our recent research has focused on how technological change influences the retirement decisions of older workers,(1) the skill acquisition of young workers,(2) and the interindustry
wage structure.(3) Since data on the rate of technological change faced by workers in their jobs is unavailable in any non-firm-level dataset, we have used industry-level measures of technological change instead.
Subsequent research has largely supported the view that interindustry
differentials demonstrate noncompetitive aspects of wage determination, although there is debate over the extent to which unobserved individual heterogeneity might be responsible for measured industry effects as well (Allen 1995; Blackburn and Neumark 1992; Blackburn 1995; Fields and Wolff 1995; Gibbons and Katz 1992; Grey 1993; Keane 1993).
Yet, the more important questions are why such influence occurs and what explains the extent of interindustry
In Section IV, I examine the empirical determinants of interindustry
and interfirm job changes, and I present several results that provide strong support for this hypothesis.
Input-Output models take into account the importance of interindustry
trade - the buying and selling of intermediate goods.
