32 p, 464.2 KB Fertility risk in the life-cycle / Choi, Sekyu (University of Bristol)
In this article, I study fertility decisions with special emphasis on the timing of births and abortions over the life cycle. Given the policy debate regarding abortion availability and recent evidence of its positive impact on women's outcomes, understanding the fertility process should help guide the discussion. [...]

31 p, 431.6 KB Revisiting the effect of household size on consumption over the life-cycle / Choi, Sekyu (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Bick, Alexander (Arizona State University)
Although the link between household size and consumption has strong empirical support, there is no consistent way in which demographics are dealt with in standard life-cycle models. We study the relationship between the predictions of the Single Agent model (the standard in the literature) versus a simple model extension (the Demographics model) where deterministic changes in household size and composition affect optimal consumption decisions.

16 p, 462.3 KB A Note on U.S. Worker Turnover / Choi, Sekyu (University of Bristol) ; Fernández-Blanco, Javier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)
The length of new employment relationships is of first‐order importance for a number of questions in recent macro‐labour research. We investigate it using data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation for the US from 1996 onwards, and document that above two‐fifths of newly employed workers fall into non‐employment within a year.

43 p, 536.9 KB Unemployment, participation and worker flows over the life-cycle / Choi, Sekyu (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Janiak, Alexandre (Universidad de Chile) ; Villena-Roldán, Benjamín (Universidad de Chile)
We estimate and report life-cycle transition probabilities between employment, unemployment and inactivity for male and female workers using Current Population Survey monthly files. We assess the relative importance of each probability in explaining the life-cycle profiles of par-ticipation and unemployment rates using a novel decomposition method. [...]

Aquesta tesi estudia les interaccions entre les dinàmiques del mercat laboral i l'estructura de les famílies, i com aquestes interaccions afecten les polítiques públiques. Als EUA, s'observen patrons molt diferents pel que fa a participació laboral, ocupació i desocupació entre les persones casades i solteres. [...]

In the US economy, we observe very different patterns regarding labor force participation, employment, and unemployment between single and married individuals. [...]
