Maternal Labour Supply and All-Day Primary Schools in Germany

Jan Marcus and Frauke Peter

No 67, DIW Roundup: Politik im Fokus from DIW Berlin, German Institute for Economic Research

Abstract: The economic literature provides vast evidence of how public provision of day care for children below school age increases the labour force participation of mothers. The causal effect of all-day schooling in primary school on maternal supply has been examined less since morning-only schooling is less common in developed countries. The present article summarises the findings of (mostly) economic studies on the impact of all-day schooling (Ganztagsschulen) on maternal employment, with a special focus on Germany.
