Geschlechtsspezifische Arbeitsmarktsegregation und Geburtenverhalten: neue Befunde auf Basis der „Biografiedaten ausgewählter Sozialversicherungsträger in Deutschland“ (BASiD)
This paper uses recently available data from linked pension and employment registers for Germany, which contain complete fertility histories of women as well as longitudinal information of firm-specific characteristics where these women have been employed. It is examined how occupational sex segregation of the labor market (measured by the share of female employees in a firm) is related to first, second and third birth risks. In line with previous research, we find a strong sex segregation of the German labor market. We also find strong support for a close relationship of occupational sex segregation and fertility behavior. Women who are employed in female-dominated firms have substantially higher first, second and third birth risks than other women.
