ECON 57 Data Analysis for Economic Policy: Economics of Career and Family

This course examines the changing significance, timing, and meaning of career, family, and marriage, with special emphasis on the economic role of women and on determinants of gender gaps. For example, the gap between men’s and women’s earnings exists across the income distribution and the education distribution. But the gap is generally far greater for higher earners and for those with more education. Why? How do these gaps arise and what might reduce or eliminate them? Topics include the role of time controllability and compensating differentials; discrimination in pay in a host of circumstances; women’s bargaining skills; feedback mechanisms between household’s decisions and the labor market; children; parental leave policy; firm-level policies; childcare policies.
