Income decreases more for women regardless of occupation and age

TCO 2021: How does becoming a parent affect men and women's respective incomes?

The Swedish TCO (Tjänstemannaorganisationen) has concluded that occupation does not have an effect on income loss due to childbirth. Mothers will no matter occupation suffer a higher income loss than fathers. It doesn't matter whether it's the woman or the man that has the highest income before the first child is born, the income gap between genders post childbirth will stay the same. This also applies for occupations where men and women have the same income. In occupations where men have a higher income before childbirth (for example within sales) the loss for mothers is even more significant. In occupations where women earn more than their male counterparts (which is the case for teachers within elementary school), the income loss for mothers will still be much larger than the one for men.

The income gap will last for at least nine years, i.e. the complete period of time that has been researched. To fully understand the total extent of the effect on income loss for mothers, we need more research over longer time periods.

The Noble prize winner's research shows that starting a family is the main cause of the income gap

Claudia Goldin Nobel Prize winner 2023

The Nobel prize winner Claudia Goldin has with her groundbreaking research provided insights into the gender pay gap. By looking at women's income and labor market participation over time and studying over 200 years of data from the U.S. that market, Claudia has identified key drivers to the gender income gap.

Gradual transformations in social norms and structural changes in regards to family building are important aspects. Early decisions on education have a positive impact on future career development while expectations based on experiences of the previous generations hinder the development to a more equal pay.
