Labor Participation of Married Women in Colombia


  • Borradores de economía


  • 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.
