Adjustments in women’s labour force participation in response to the deterioration of the labour market situation of the male partner


In this report, we examined one particular resilience strategy these couples may develop in case of men’s entry to unemployment or involuntary nonstandard employment, namely woman’s increase in her labour supply. We also investigate the role of country-specific policies in moderating her response. To this end, we conducted three empirical studies based on EU-SILC and EU LFS data which were complemented with policy indicators derived from EUROMOD and UKMOD.
