Abstract

In this paper, we study the impact of the presence of young children on parents' labour market participation and employment patterns and their implication in terms of working hours and employment continuity in 24 European countries. The results show that motherhood has an important and negative impact on female labour market participation both in terms of part-time and inactivity in some countries. The fatherhood effect is not clear and very different through countries. In general, paternity increases the employment's probability but has no significant effect on the number of working hours.
