Abstract

A time series econometric model of the Corpus Christi unemployment rate is estimated that includes an intervention variable to capture the impact and recovery activity associated with hurricane Bret in August 1999. The results suggest that Corpus Christi's labor market improved following the hurricane, controlling for business cycle trends and general movements in the economy.
