We examine reduced form versions of New Keynesian wage Phillips curves using monthly US state-level data for the period 1982-2016, taking account of the endogeneity of unemployment by instrumentation and the presence of common correlated effects (CCE). We find that theoretically coherent specifications taking account of the aggregate dynamics of unemployment may be estimated by the CCE estimator, whereas less efficient and potentially inconsistent methods differ and are problematic.
