In this paper, we investigate the child penalty in Russia using data from the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS) and the methodological framework of event studies. We find that five years after childbirth, women suffer an earnings penalty, while no effect is observed for men. The mothers’ penalty stems exclusively from lower employment a...

As a response to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Serbia introduced virus containment measures throughout 2020. The measures, which significantly affected economic activity, were most restrictive during the state of emergency, which lasted from March 15 to May 6. The government adopted generous support measures to mitigate t...

Using the Labour Force Survey data for the period 2014 to 2018 for Serbia, this paper explores the effect of parenthood on the labour market trajectories of parents, the so-called ‘parenthood penalty’. We find that mothers are less likely than non-mothers to be active in the labour market when their children are very young, but this effect is trans...

We study the link between residential segregation and fertility for the socially excluded and marginalized Roma ethnic minority. Using original survey data we collected in Serbia, we investigate whether fertility differs between ethnically homogeneous and mixed neighborhoods. Our results show that Roma in less-segregated areas tend to have signific...
Article
A poor-performing student can improve her educational attainments by following the footprints of an older friend or neighbor. In this paper we study a remedial education program that takes advantage of this phenomenon. Introduced in Serbian primary schools in 2009, the Roma Teaching Assistant Program targets underachieving students belonging to the...

This paper aims to examine whether the degree of residential segregation affects formal and informal employment of the Roma ethnic minority in Serbia. I exploit the within district variation in the percentage of Roma to identify the effect of residential segregation on labor market outcomes. The results show that Roma in more segregated census trac...

We examine how a remedial education programme for primary school-age children affects parental expectations about their children's future. Using original survey data we collected in Serbia, we investigate whether expectations on labour market prospects and educational attainment change as a consequence of exposure to the Roma Teaching Assistant pro...

Purpose – There is plenty of individual-level evidence, based on the estimation of Mincerian equations, showing that better-educated individuals earn more. This is usually interpreted as a proof that education raises labour productivity. Some macroeconomists, analysing cross-country time series, also support the idea that the continuous expansion o...
