dc.description.abstractConsistent with facts for a cross-section of OECD countries, I document that the labor force participation rate of West German motherswith children aged zero to two exceeds the corresponding child care enrollment rate whereas the opposite is true for mothers with childrenaged three to mandatory school age. I develop a life-cycle model that explicitly accounts for this age-dependent relationship through varioustypes of non-paid and paid child care. The calibrated version of the model is used to evaluate two recently passed policy reforms concerning the supply of subsidized child care for children aged zero to two in Germany. These counterfactual policy experiments suggest that thelack of subsidized child care constitutes indeed for some females a barrier to participate in the labor market and depresses fertility.en_US
