Abstract

This study provides an analysis of the determinants of female part-time employment in 18 European countries. The distinction between short and long part-time allowed us to highlight some differences. Female part-timers are often married mothers and hold less secure jobs within the public sector. In addition, long part-time seems to stand out by economic conditions more favorable in terms of security. Our decomposition of the working time suggests that the differences between long part-time and short part-time appear to be stronger than differences between full-time and short part-time and working conditions of both long part-time and full-time may justify these differences.
