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).

Family-friendly work practices : differences within and between workplaces /

by Gray, Matthew | Australian Institute of Family Studies | Tudball, Jacqueline.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2002Summary: This study analyses the extent to which access to family-friendly work practices is influenced or determined by differential access within organisations as compared with differential access between organisations. The analysis is based upon the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey 1995 (AWIRS95), a linked employee—employer data set. The linked nature of the data allows information from employers and employees to be combined, providing a unique perspective on the incentives and constraints employers face when deciding which work practices to make available to which employees. These data allow the first large-scale study in Australia of differences in access to family-friendly work practices amongst employees working in the same workplace.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

It presents information about time spent in labour force activities, including episodes of working or looking for work, and time spent out of the labour force. ; The statistics in this publication were compiled from data collected in the Labour Force Experience Survey conducted throughout Australia in February 2011 as a supplement to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS). ; For this publication, labour force activity over a 12-month period was determined from a more limited set of questions than is used in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS). For this reason, the terms worked and looked for work are used, rather than the more precisely defined terms employed and unemployed, as used in the LFS. In this survey, the concepts worked and looked for work are used to determine whether a person was in the labour force during the year. Therefore, this concept is also based on a more limited set of questions than the Labour Force Survey. ; Labour force experience relates to a person's labour force activities over a 12-month period. Labour force activity consists of either working or looking for work. ; This survey measured the number of weeks in which persons were engaged in these labour force activities during the year, the number of spells of looking for work during the year and the main activity of persons when not in the labour force -- ABS websiteAvailability: No items available
