Does part time employment help or hinder lone mothers' movements into full time employment? /

by Fok, Yin King | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Jeon, Sung-Hee | Wilkins, Roger.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute Working Paper ; no. 25/09.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: A significant demographic trend in recent decades in Australia has been the growth in lone parent families as a proportion of all families, associated with which has been growth in welfare dependency. This has led to considerable policy focus on increasing lone parent participation in employment. A key issue that has arisen for the Government in pursuing this policy goal is whether, in the context of a welfare system that accommodates the combining of part-time employment with welfare receipt, part-time employment helps or hinders a progression to full-time employment, and whether and how this depends on characteristics such as the number and ages of dependent children. In this study, we investigate this issue using Australian panel data on female lone parents over the period 2001 to 2007. We estimate dynamic random effects multinomial logit models of three labour force states ? not employed, employed part-time, and employed full-time ? allowing investigation of whether part-time work represents a stepping stone to full-time employment. Evidence in support of the stepping stone hypothesis is found. Part-time employment increases the probability of full-time employment in the next year by approximately six percentage points. No (statistically significant) evidence is found that this stepping stone function varies by number of children or age of the youngest child.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Employment characteristics and transitions of mothers in the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children /

by Baxter, Jennifer | Australia. Dept. of Social Services.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Department of Social Services 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Appendix : 79-95 Bibliography : 100-107Summary: For women, the life stage at which combining employment with other commitments is most challenging is when they are raising their children. This report focuses on this time, providing information about mothers' employment from those with babies through to those with primary school-age children. The report provides some broad descriptive information about mothers' employment patterns, including work hours, job contracts and occupations, in addition to the simpler measure of whether or not they are employed. It also explores how patterns vary across the characteristics of mothers and families. ; The report is based on the first four waves of the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC), including families of children from both the B cohort ('birth' at Wave 1, born between March 2003 and February 2004) and the K cohort ('kindergarten' at Wave 1, born between March 1999 and February 2000). The data are primarily taken from reports of mothers of these children and specifically relate to characteristics of their employment at each wave. This allows analyses of differences in employment characteristics of mothers who have different personal and family characteristics and also allows analyses of mothers' employment transitions from one wave to the next. Both approaches are used in this report.Availability: (1)
