Work choices of married women : drivers of change /

by Cai, Lixin.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Productivity Commission 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Productivity Commission. Visiting researcher paper ; no. 1.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2010 Bibliography : p. 61-63 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This study on the labour supply decisions of married women by Dr Lixin Cai is the first to be published under the Commission's Visiting Researcher Papers series. The study, drawing on HILDA panel data, estimates the influences affecting married women's participation in the labour force and how this changes with changes in their lives. The analysis provides useful estimates of parameters that assist in predicting how changes in these well-known factors affect labour force participation. It finds that there is no inherent state dependence in labour force status for married women, but rather that the observed inertia arises from unobserved individual characteristics. This report adds both to our understanding of what affects labour supply decisions and techniques for analysing panel data.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
