A Dynamic Model of Labor Supply Under Uncertainty 1985

This paper lays out the model as in the 1981 paper but also discusses estimation and identification in some detail. Simplifies to a stationary environment with a single wage and then fits gross flow data. Includes empirical results showing interesting differences across demographic groups in fitted parameters and resulting behavior.
