Abstract

What effect does change of the marital status of the individual to his wages in Russia? We used matching estimators (simple matching estimator and propensity score matching) on RLMS data for 2000–2009. On the basis of estimates we analyzed different transitions of changing marital status («not married — registered marriage », «registered marriage — divorced», «divorced — civil marriage», «divorced — registered marriage», «registered marriage — widow (widower)», «registered marriage — civil marriage») and their effect on wages separately for men and women. It was found that women are more influenced by cast of change in private life on the behavior on the labor market. For women, most of the transitions lead to some costs in wages, except a «divorced — registered marriage». For men it was significantly affect wages only transition «registered marriage — divorce».
