Spain is one of the OCDE countries where the unemployment rate is higher. Some explanations stress the important role played by unemployment spells in relation to entry rates to the unemployment pool. Long-term unemployment rates are particularly high for women in Spain. The object of this paper is to investigate the determinants of unemployment duration for women. We will consider personal characteristics (education and age), family background socioeconomic variables (the number of household earners and household income) and the effect of unemployment benefits, using data from the Household Expenditure Survey 1990-91. Espña es uno de los paises de la OCDE donde la tasa de desempleo es mayor. Algunas explicaciones destacan el papel relevante de la duración del desempleo en comparación con las tasas de entrada en el mismo. Las tasas de desempleo de larga duración son especialmente elevadns en el caso de las mujeres. El objetivo de este documento es investigar los determinantes del desempleo y de la duración del desempleo de las mujeres en España. Tomando como base la informcación de la Encuesta de Presupuestos Familiares 1990-91, se analiza el impacto de las características personales (nivel educativo, edaad), variables socioeconómicas de la familia (el número de perceptores y la renta de los hogares) y el efecto de las prestaciones de desempleo.
