Abstract

We explore the determinants of the relative probabilities of labour force participation for British and Spanish married (or cohabiting) mothers. We further decompose these probabilities and find a substantial cross-national gap in participation rates that can be predominantly explained by higher wages and greater child-care use in Britain. As the process of unification across Europe leads to common working conditions, we expect the size of this participation gap to fall dramatically.
