Furthermore, we compare the welfare function conditional on the presence and age of children and asses ...

    Women's Earning Power and the "Double Burden" of Market and Household Work

    Bargaining theory suggests that married women who experience a relative improvement in their labour market position should experience a comparative gain within their marriage.

    The Gender Gap Reloaded: Are School Characteristics Linked to Labor Market Performance?

We also study the importance of high school characteristics in predicting future labor market performance. We conduct analyses for three major racial/ethnic groups in the US: Whites, Blacks, and Hispanics, employing ...

    This article compares women's and men's economic relations in East and West Germany following the 1990 reunification to exemplify the impact of varying opportunity structures on women's relative contribution to family income.
