Abstract

The paper deals with the problem of combining maternity with employment in Russia. The authors try to one of the most important questions of the social policy -- what determines the choice between market employment and house wife status. Based on results of the regression analysis made with the help of the representative household survey (Russian longitudinal Monitoring Survey) of 2000-2009 five hypothesizes were tested. The main conclusions are the following: having small children (less than 3 years old) considerably decreases the chances to be employed for a woman, however when the child is more than seven the probability grows fast as well as the number of working hours. Unexpectedly the presence of partner has positive effect on having a job while negatively affect the number of working hours. Another factor of female employment is the share of her income in the total family budget. Adapted from the source document.
