Mapping children impact on gender inequality in the labour market
Gender inequality in the labour market has been associated with having children particularly for women. The process from children to gender inequality and welfare remains unchartered. So far, research identifies only the effect of children once born. The fundamental mechanisms and their impact on welfare are not well understood. The EU-funded GENEQUALITY project will shed light on the impact of children on gender inequality, provide new evidence on the mechanisms underlying strong gender specialisation in parenthood, map the welfare consequences, and describe the best policies to employ. The project will draw on unique administrative data, new estimates from natural language processing, compelling quasi-experimental designs, and established techniques in public finance.
