Why Do Women Married to Unemployed Men Have Low Participation Rates?
Cross-national data show wives of unemployed men to have lower participation rates than wives of employed men. Employment status of husbands may proxy characteristics of wives associated with low participation or incentives for wives may be affected by income-testing of unemployment benefit of husbands. The authors investigate these issues using panel data on German couples covering five years. They first control for unobservables using the conditional logit model with modifications to avoid excessive computational burden that arises in long panels. The authors then estimate discrete-time duration models of the length of the wife's spells of participation and nonparticipation. Copyright 1995 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
