This paper addresses the question: What factors are associated with, or influence, a partnered male’s participation in paid employment over his lifetime? Analyses in this paper are restricted to males who are aged 25 to 64 and have a partner. Of particular interest is whether a non-intact family background has a negative impact on an individual’s paid employment participation later in life, when the effects of other covariates are adjusted for in our statistical models. In order to answer these questions, two different parametric statistical models are applied to the first wave data from the survey of Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA).
