Maternal employment, fertility, child care use, and cognitive outcomes of children: Evidence from a Norwegian Reform
Authors: Marc K. Chan (University of Technology, Sydney); Kai Liu (Norwegian School of Economics)
Although the impacts of Québec's child care policy have been estimated in earlier papers, we present some new results with more recent data with the NLSCY on child development, with the NLSCY and the Census on labour supply and provide a cost-benefit analysis with the SLID. We find some negative impacts of the policy on child development, the positive impacts found with earlier data are replicated with more recent data but the Census provides some measure of uncertainty regarding the results found with the NLSCY.
