Labour Supply Response to Spousal Sickness Absence
Abstract: This study examines labour supply responses to spousal
sickness absence (SSA) using a Swedish longitudinal panel data, from
1996-2002. The overall results present an evidence of a decrease in labour
supply in response to spousal sickness absence. The effect on labour supply
increases with spousal earnings level. Women react stronger than men, and
more often respond to current shorter term SSA, whereas men mostly react to
longer term SSA.
