Seminar | April 5 | 12-1:30 p.m. | Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, IRLE Director's Room
Newborns require a lot of resources. And with the changes in income composition that come with a birth, many families face financial uncertainty. This has implications for childrens health and development, womens economic security, and public program design. This research finds that households see significant and enduring declines in economic security before and after a birth, with especially large income drops for single mothers who live alone. Exisiting safety nets buffer these declines, but they do not eliminate them. More generous and timely income supports, as well as policies facilitating mothers employment, could shore families up during this critical period.
A light lunch will be provided.
