Abstract

There is substantial heterogeneity in the gender gaps in unemployment across OECD countries. We incorporate labor market conditions, moral hazard and home production into a quantitative model of unemployment. The model can explain most of the gender gaps in unemployment across the OECD countries. We �find that each component is quantitatively important to match the gender gaps in unemployment.
