The aim of this paper is to explore the main determinants of women’s job search propensity as well as the mechanism underlying the selection effect across the four European countries (Italy, Greece, Hungary and Poland) with the lowest female labour force participation. The potential bias due to the overlap in some unobserved characteristics is addressed via a bivariate probit model. Significant selection effects of opposite signs are found for the Greek and Polish labour markets.

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the main determinants of women’s job search propensity as well as the mechanism underlying the selection effect across the four European countries (Italy, Greece, Hungary and Poland) with the lowest female labour force participation. The potential bias due to the overlap in some unobserved characteristics is addressed via a bivariate probit model. Significant selection effects of opposite signs are found for the Greek and Polish labour markets.
