The Changing Life Cycle Pattern In Female Employment: A Comparison Of Germany And The Uk
Employment rates of women have been rising but women are often part-time employed and employment interruptions over the life-cycle are linked to family formation. This paper analyzes empirically full-time and part-time employment of different skill groups of women in the UK and West Germany. Patterns of part-time and full-time employment are different across skill groups and countries. Full-time employment declines and part-time employment increases with age. Time trends do not change in a monotonous way across skill groups and they differ by country. The strong increase in part-time rates in both countries over time can mainly be attributed to composition effects. Copyright (c) Scottish Economic Society 2004.
