Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper examines whether Australian labour market variables, in particular aggregate employment and unemployment, exhibit particular forms of nonlinearity and asymmetry that are of economic interest. The analysis uses nonparametric tests - the BDS test and the triples test. The BDS test assesses whether general residual unexplained nonlinearity remains once linear modeling has been applied to the data. The triples test is used to test for 'steepness' and 'deepness' asymmetries at the business cycle frequency. Evidence is found of nonlinearities
