February 2019Child Penalties Across Countries: Evidence and Explanations
with Henrik Kleven, Camille Landais, Johanna Posch, Josef Zweim├╝ller: w25524
This paper provides evidence on child penalties in female and male earnings in different countries. The estimates are based on event studies around the birth of the first child, using the specification proposed by Kleven et al. (2018). The analysis reveals some striking similarities in the qualitative effects of children across countries, but also sharp differences in the magnitude of the effects. We discuss the potential role of family policies (parental leave and child care provision) and gender norms in explaining the observed differences.
