Abstract

The objective of this paper is to examine the impact of job loss onfamily mental well-being. The negative income shock can affect the mental healthstatus of the individual who directly experiences such displacement, as well as thepsychological well-being of his partner; also, job loss may have a significantlydetrimental effect on life satisfaction, self-esteem and on the individual’s perceivedrole in society. This analysis is based on a sample of married and cohabitatingcouples from the first 14 waves of the British Household Panel Survey. In order tocorrect for the possible endogeneity of job loss, data from employment histories isutilised and redundancies different from dismissals in declining industries are usedas an indicator of exogenous job loss. Results show evidence that couples in whichthe husband experiences a job loss are more likely to experience poor mental health.
