dc.description.abstractWe use a rich longitudinal data set for West Germany to disentangle the wage effects forfemale workers around first birth. Data on daily real wages reveal a dip in women's realwages shortly before giving birth and a drop of 10 to 20 percent after finishing maternity leaveand returning to the labour market. To pinpoint what drives the movement in wages aroundthe first birth, we analyse the wages of women, taking into account the potential correlation ofthe duration of individual interruptions due to parental leave with other unobservedindividually specific factors and non random sample selection. In order to identify the causesof the movements in wages we exploit the panel structure of the data, regional variations inaccess to child care and female unemployment rates, as well as policy changes, whichincreased the maximum duration of parental leave from 6 months to 3 years.en_US
