Type of Thesis
This paper analyzes how maternal employment affects child development, and how this relationship depends on the mother’s education level. Results suggest that maternal employment during a child’s first year of life has a positive effect on cognitive test scores, but maternal employment reverses to a negative effect during the child’s later years. My results also indicate that the relationship between maternal employment and child outcomes is more positive for mothers with a college education than for mothers without an education.
