Abstract

This paper examines the effect of maternal employment on mothers’ overall health and psychological distress. This study makes use of data from the Early childhood longitudinal study, Kindergarten Class of 2010-11 and the U.S Bureau of Labor statistics. For the purpose of analysis, IV probit regression is used having state level unemployment rate as an instrument for maternal employment. The findings of this paper suggest that the effect of mothers’ weekly work hours on mothers’ overall health is positive and significant for the spring third-grade cohort. In addition, there is evidence that the effect of maternal employment on mothers’ overall health and psychological distress differs by type of occupation. Mothers in managerial, professional and low supervisory jobs are more likely to be psychologically distressed but also have higher probability of being in good overall health condition compared to mothers in manual jobs.
