Abstract

US and British unemployment rates for non-white males and females are compared over the period 1970±1998. Whereas US rates remained fairly steady, there was a marked increase in British non-white unemployment rates. The reasons for this poor performance, relative to the good performance of US non-whites are explored. It is shown that non-white unemployment behaves in di� erent ways across the two countries. For example, British rates rise faster in a recession than white rates, whereas US rates appear not to follow this British hypercyclical pattern.
