|Paid Family Leave, Fathers' Leave-Taking, and Leave-Sharing in Dual-Earner Households|
National Bureau of Economic Research [NBER]
Nov. 23, 2015
"[The authors] study California's Paid Family Leave (CA-PFL) program, which is the first source of government-provided paid parental leave available to fathers in the United States.... [F]athers in California are 0.9 percentage points ... more likely to take leave in the first year of their children's lives when CA-PFL is available.... CA-PFL increases father-only leave-taking (i.e., father on leave while mother is at work) by 50 percent and joint leave-taking (i.e., both parents on leave at the same time) by 28 percent. These effects are much larger for fathers of sons than for fathers of daughters, and almost entirely driven by fathers of first-born children and fathers in occupations with a high share of female workers."
