ㅇ Abstract
: Using individual longitudinal data, KLIPS, this paper estimates the effect of being unemployed on the risk of divorce. To solve the endogeneity problem of being unemployed, I select the individuals who lost their job involuntarily during the IMF shock period. The hypothesis is that a couple postpones divorce until the economic expansion or recovery period because of an economic constraint when one spouse loses a job involuntarily. The method for the estimation is DD, but I estimate the risk of divorce year by year to see the dynamics. It is estimated using the Bartik instrument as well as a robustness check. For the method with the Bartik instrument, there is a different risk of being unemployed given to each individual depending on the industry each person works for and the region.
