Effects of early childhood intervention on maternal employment, fertility and well-being

Abstract

"This paper presents results from a randomized evaluation of a home visiting program implemented in three German federal states for disadvantaged first-time mothers and their families. I analysis the impact of the intervention on maternal employment, school attendance, child care use, fertility, life-satisfaction and well-being. Biannual telephone interviews with the participating mothers until the third birthday of the child give a rich data source to evaluate these outcomes. I find that the intervention increases fertility and maternal life-satisfaction and well-being, whereas the treatment does not affect maternal employment, school attendance, and child care use. These results are in contrast to previous studies from the US where home visiting programs decreased fertility." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
