Economic consequences of divorce

De Vaus, Gray, Qu & Stanton - Australian Institute of Family Studies March 2015.
13-04-2015
This report presents a cross-national comparison of the short- and medium-term economic effects of divorce. Estimates for men and women are derived from longitudinal data from Australia, Germany, Korea, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The findings show that though divorce has a negative effect on the equivalised household incomes of women in all of these countries, the extent and duration of these negative effects differ markedly between the nations.
 

Does the time mothers spend with children matter?

Journal of Marriage and Family, April 2015.
30-03-2015
Though American parents are with their children more than any parents in the world, many feel guilty because they donít believe itís enough. Thatís because thereís a widespread cultural assumption that the time parents, particularly mothers, spend with children is key to ensuring a bright future. Now this new research upends that conventional wisdom and finds that that isnít the case. At all.

16-03-2015
Though there has been profound research on the curious change in correlation between total fertility rate and female labor force participation in the mid-1980s, aspects of the compositional character of age-specific effects and the nature of countriesí heterogeneity have been neglected. The results highlight the fact that total and age-specific fertility behavior, effects and country variances are distinct concepts that add considerably to the broad understanding of the correlation between fertility and female labor force participation.
