Abstract

In the recent work, I use the external variation of the WWII in order to exploit the effects of increase in female labor supply on the education outcomes for children. The mobilization process in the early 1940s in the U.S. pushed in some cases, incentivized in others, females to enter the labor market or to increase the weeks worked annually. For investigating that process I use data for the mobilization rates per state. This unique shift in the female labor outcomes gives opportunity to investigate the education attainment of children of mothers who were affected by the mobilization process. The main results show that there is a significant positive correlation between mobilization rates and females annual weeks worked, and negative correlation between females weeks worked and the education attainment of their children. The empirical results are utilized by statistical and/or economic significance.
