    Abstract: 本稿は,中東欧・旧ソ連諸国における市場経済への体制転換プロセスを追跡した過去20数年間の研究蓄積の中から,諸外国からの直接投資(FDI)とこれらの国々の経済再建との関係に注目を払った文献を取り上げ,FDIの決定要因,マクロ経済成長への効果及び企業レベルのミクロ経済効果から成る3つの研究領域毎に,これら先行研究が披露する実証結果を,メタ分析の手法を以って統合・鳥瞰すると共に,研究間の相違性を決定付ける要因や公表バイアスの可能性を,メタ回帰分析によって検証した。これら3つの研究領域は,既存研究全体として,統計的に有意な非ゼロの効果を等しく報告しているが,公表バイアスの問題を越えても正真正銘の効果が見出されるのは,FDI決定要因研究分野に限られることが確認された。残る2 つの研究領域は,真の効果を突き止めるために,更なる実証成果の蓄積が求められる。

    Abstract: This research gives an overview of labour market internal and occupational mobility in Latvia comparing periods before, during and after the crisis. It uses both the labour flow analysis and the survival analysis to evaluate labour mobility and to determine factors influencing it. The analysis is based on labour force survey (LFS) longitudinal data for 2005–2011. The paper investigates possible asymmetric responses of the labour market during the extreme period of economic boom and bust, provides detailed information on the aspects of labour market mobility (e.g. changes in the types of labour contract, sector and region of work) and factors determining changes in the status of economic activity (employed or unemployed). We also propose a new way for calculating labour market flows to provide information on quarterly changes.
    Keywords: labour flows, labour force survey, labour mobility, occupational mobility, unemployment
