题目：Labor Market Discrimination against Family Responsibilities: A Correspondence Study with Policy Change in China
China’s highly controversial one-child policy (1979-2015) was shifted to the two-child policy in 2016. We take advantage of this unexpected policy change and the heterogeneities in the pre-2016 policy environment to investigate statistical discrimination against expected family responsibilities. In a two-wave correspondence study before and after the policy change, about 9,000 fictitious resumes were sent to real online job advertisements. The information on the applicants’ gender and only-/sibling-child status was systematically varied. We find that women, but not men, are subject to statistical discrimination for expected family responsibilities. This discrimination worsens as the probability of maternity increases with age.
