  • 2000-12 :: Participation of Married Women in the Labour Market and the 'Added Worker Effect' in Europe
    by Juan Prieto-Rodríguez & César Rodríguez-Gutiérrez & 2000

    In this paper, we estimate labour participation equations for married women for eleven European countries, using data from the European Community Household Panel corresponding to the years 1994, 1995 and 1996. The main objective of our study is to test whether the 'added worker effect' holds. From our results it can be concluded that the labour market participation of the married woman basicall...

  • 2000-11 :: On the Identification of Relative Wage Rigidity Dynamics: A Proposal for a Methodology on Cross-Section Data and Empirical Evidence for Poland in Transition
    by Patrick A. Puhani & 2000-10

    We present a new and simple empirical methodology to identify relative wage rigidity dynamics. The methodology is applied to data from the Polish Labour Force Survey for the period 1994 to 1998. We estimate ceteris paribus changes in relative wage and unemployment differentials for various labour market defining characteristics. A simultaneous increase in the relative wage and the unemployment lik...

  • 2000-10 :: Measuring Income Inequality in Euroland
    by Miriam Beblo & Thomas Knaus & 2000-10

    In this paper we propose an aggregate measure of income inequality for the founding countries of the European monetary union. Applying the methodology of the Theil index we are able to derive a measure for Euroland as a whole by exploiting information from two data sets: the European Community Household Panel and the Luxembourg Income Study. The property of additive decomposability allows us to de...

  • 2000-09 :: Gender Agency at the Intersection of State, Market and Family: Changes in Fertility and Maternal Labor Supply in Eight Countries
    by Lynn Prince Cooke & 2000

    Current debates on the welfare state entail two intertwined questions. First, does a nation have sufficient active labor force participation to maintain the benefits for non-participants? Second, do social provisions exacerbate or attenuate class, ethnic and other distinctions within society? As predominantly structural or institutional debates, these discussions tend to exclude the impact social ...

  • 2000-08 :: Affluence and Poverty in Old Age: New Evidence from the European Community Household Panel
    by Georges A. Heinrich & 2000-09

    The relative income positions and welfare of elderly persons in the EU are analysed using data from the European Community Household Panel. The elderly invariably receive lower average incomes than the non-elderly, but there are large variations across countries. Pensions represent the main source of income of the elderly, with labour and capital incomes contributing only marginally to total incom...

  • 2000-07 :: Women's Labour Force Attachment in Europe: An Analytical Framework and Empirical Evidence for the Household
    by Ulrike Muehlberger & 2000-07

    This paper has two major aims. First, it argues that for employment issues, economics and sociology do not carry out substitutional but complementary research. Interdisciplinary research on labour markets is strongly needed to fully understand the mechanism of labour markets. Second, it theoretically discusses the influence of the household on women's labour market behaviour and shows some evidenc...

  • 2000-06 :: Do Forms of Social Exclusion Accumulate in the EU Countries?
    by Pasi Moisio & 2000

    Instead of unemployment or poverty the European Commission has focused on 'social exclusion'. It has been made the biggest challenge for the social and employment policies of the EU that are still in the process of being developed. Through the European Union this rhetoric has diffused to the national political programmes of the EU countries. Difficulties in integrating with the labour market are...

  • 2000-05 :: How Do Employer Provided Pensions Affect Individual Job Mobility Choices in the United States? New Evidence from SIPP Data
    by Vincenzo Andrietti & Vincent Hildebrand & 2000-04

    This paper explores the determinants of international patterns of housing tenure choice. Up to now, no study has carried out an international comparison in housing tenure using household level data. The Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) provides microeconomic data on fourteen OECD countries. In most of these countries the cross-section is repeated over time. This allows us to construct a truly unique...

  • 2000-03 :: Sickness Absence: An International Comparison
    by Tim A. Barmby & Marco G. Ercolani & John G. Treble & 2000-02

    Previous attempts to analyse international differences in patterns of worker absenteeism have not been convincing because of the difficulty in obtaining internationally comparable data. In this paper, we apply the technique described by Barmby, Ercolani and Treble(1999) to data on full-time workers in 9 countries who have deposited Labour Force Survey returns with the Luxembourg Employment Study. ...

  • 2000-02 :: Human Capital Estimation through Structural Equation Models with some Categorical Observed Variables
    by Annamaria Di Bartolo & 2000

    The aim of this paper is to estimate, for US, Canada and Italy, the latent variable human capital and its causal relationship with labor income, through some Structural Equation Models. The analyzed models contain some observed categorical variables, which imply the use of the two-stage estimation technique....

  • 2000-01 :: Portability of Supplementary Pension Rights in the European Union
    by Vincenzo Andrietti & 2000-01

    European Union legislation on portability of supplementary pension rights accrued by private sector migrant workers is at an early stage. The recent directive on this topic, aiming to preserve accrued pension rights at least at the level guaranteed in case of within borders mobility, emphasizes the role of country specific legislation on pension portability issues. This paper analyzes EU as well ...
