Author Info

  • Kraft, Kornelius

Abstract

This article analyzes whether unemployment has an effect on the splitting of a marital relationship. The study uses 40000 observations on unemployment spells and marital status during the period from 1987 to 1996. Random effects probit and conditional likelihood logit models for panel data are applied. Using several control variables, it was confirmed that unemployment does actually lead to a higher probability of the separation of married couples.
