Abstract

In the last two decades, after the Asian financial crisis, Korea has witnessed a rapid increase in the share of temporary contractual work in its employment composition. In this paper, we investigate the impact of job insecurity and job loss on children’s health using Korea Welfare Panel Study data. We find that paternal job loss and insecurity has a significantly negative effect on health, while maternal job loss and insecurity has no effect. This could be because the effects of income loss and financial hardship are greater for male workers than for females.
