Results show that the re-entry into part-time employment is primarily affected by the mother’s own resources and former career, the return to full-time work is more linked to the partner’s ...

    Changing Identity: Retiring from Unemployment

    Using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel from 1984-2009, we follow persons from their working life into their retirement years and find that, on average, employed people maintain their life satisfaction upon retirement, while long-term unemployed people report a substantial increase in their life satisfaction when they retire. These results are robust to controlling for changes in other life ...
