Labor Participation of Married Women in Colombia

Luis Arango Thomas and Carlos Posada

Borradores de Economia from Banco de la Republica de Colombia

Abstract: A pseudo-panel was built to estimate the determinants of the labor participation decision of married women between 1984 and 2000. Past participation decisions, education level, labor income taxes, children between 1 and 2 years of age, and the presence of other people unemployed at home are the main explanatory variables of married women’s labor participation in Colombia . The interest rate variable does not offer any insight into that decision.
