Labour Supply Response to Spousal Sickness Absence

Ruth-Ada Nahum

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.
