Kokkuvõte inglise keeles:
Demographic research has shown that young adult’s time benefits and comfort in the parental home are considerably greater in Italy than in France. Also, young women in both Italy and France benefit much less from time transfers than young men. I revisit this research problem (“the gilded cage hypothesis”) and test if there are gendered, intergenerational time transfers of young adults in the parental home in other countries, too. I study whether a higher degree of well-being and domestic comfort in the parental home compared to other living arrangements (living single on their own, co-residing with peers or living with a partner) could play a central role in young adults’ choices to stay in the nest across different leaving home regimes. I draw on Multinational Time Use Study (MTUS) data for six countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. I use the most recent comparable time-use survey suited for the analysis, between 1999 (Finland) and 2001 (Denmark and Sweden), on both the parents and their children (N = 48,204 person-diaries). Preliminary descriptive analyses confirm crossnational differences in family situations and living arrangements, as well as time use. In next steps, I will estimate the amount of time that young adults spend on domestic tasks and compare young people’s participation in domestic tasks in the different countries when they live: (1) with their parents and (2) as singles or couples outside the parental home. In addition, I will assess (3) the transfer of time from parents (in terms of domestic services) enjoyed by young co-residing adults. The cross-national comparison can prospectively provide useful insights into the reasons behind differences in young adults’ leaving home behavior across Europe.
Majandusanalüüsi ja rahanduse instituudi teadusseminarid toimuvad tavaliselt kuu teisel ja neljandal kolmapäeval. Seminarid on kõikidele huvitatud osalejatele avatud ning nende eesmärgiks on ettekannete arutelu ja teaduskoostöö edendamine. Ettekanne kestab u 45 minutit, millele järgneb veerand tundi arutelu. Seminar toimub tavaliselt inglise keeles. Ettekande aluseks olev artikkel on kättesaadav seminaril kohapeal. Küsimuste korral võib pöörduda seminaride korraldaja prof. Karsten Staehr’i poole, karsten dot staehr at ttu dot ee.
