this study examines the impact of oil price shocks on the employment of selected oil-exporting and oil-importing countries. To this end, the annual data for the period 2000-2014 and the econometric models of Christiano and Fitzgerald Filter, Bakstr-King Filter have been used to calculate the oil price shocks and the panel data model is used to estimate the model and data analysis. The results of this study can be summarized as follow: Firstly, in the exporting countries, the employment is affected by oil price shocks and is influenced by it directly. Hence, in these countries as the oil price increases, the oil revenues rises and the employment increase consequently, and vice versa. There fore these countries should utilize the opportunity of oil price increase for the economic prosperity and the rise of employment. Since lower oil price leads to the decrease of employment, therefor oil-exporting countries should deal with the negative effects of lower oil price over the employment and to consider the necessary thoughts about them. Secondly, the oil price shocks in oil-importing countries have not high significant impact on employment, so the changes and fluctuations in the employment of understudy countries had been affected by other factors. Thus, the impact of the oil price fluctuations on employment depends on the place of the countries in world oil market as supplier or demander.
Keywords: employment, oil price shocks, panel data model, Christiano and Fitzgerald Filter, Bakstr-King Filter.
