Summary
  • Anu Rammohan and Stephen Whelan examine the implications of child care costs for maternal employment status by distinguishing between full-time and part-time work. Their results indicate that child care costs have a statistically insignificant effect on the decision to work either full time or part time. Moreover, the reported elasticities of part-time and full-time work with respect to child care costs are relatively low. This suggests that the significant subsidies paid to users of child care may have a limited role in increasing the labour market activity of married mothers.
