International Family Migration and the Dual-Earner Model

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Abstract

We study the impact of international migration on labor force participation and
household economies of couples, based on a survey of Danish emigrants. We find that migration is associated with reduced female labor force participation, especially among couples migrating to the United States. Most couples that had separate economies in Denmark have joint economies abroad. Usually, the male partner contributes more. Switching towards traditional male breadwinner model is particularly strong among couples with children and with the male being highly educated.
