This increase may double the actual waiting time, which is currently already more than one year, as data from the Socio-Economic Panel show.

    Teleworking and Life Satisfaction during COVID-19: the Importance of Family Structure

    No Lasting Increase in the Gender Care Gap in Germany after the Coronavirus Pandemic

    The gender care gap, i.e., the difference between the amount of unpaid care work—such as childcare and housework—performed between men and women is comparatively high in Germany: Women take on much more unpaid care work than men. This gap increases consistently when starting a family. At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, many feared that the gender care gap may grow even larger. In ...
