Intergenerational Childcare: Full-time Schools and Grandmother’s Labour Supply

Francisco Cabrera presented a joined paper on the regular online CInSt research seminar on 16th April. This study analyses the effect of childcare provision on the labor supply of grandmothers with school-age grandchildren in the context of Mexico’s Full-Time Schools Program. The authors document how the availability of all-day schools in a municipality affects grandmothers’ decision to participate in the labor market both at the extensive and intensive margins.

The schedule of CInSt research seminars for March and April is available

We invite everyone to join our prolific seminars for discussions and new ideas. The seminars are held on each Thurday in K416, 11 Pokrovsky Boulevard.
