Child Benefit Reform and Labor Market Participation

Marcus Tamm ()

Journal of Economics and Statistics (Jahrbuecher fuer Nationaloekonomie und Statistik), 2010, vol. 230, issue 3, 313-327

Abstract: This paper examines the impact of a change in the German child benefit system in 1996, which led to a large increase in lump sum transfers to families with children.We analyze the impact on the labor force participation of women. Comparing behavioral changes of women with children with behavioral changes of women without children, we find that mothers with a working partner and children above age six considerably reduced the number of working hours (conditional on participation). Participation rates however did not decrease.
