It is often assumed that being married has a negative impact on the labor market outcomes of females but a positive impact for males. Writing in the B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy, behavioral economist Gergely Horvath examines the impact of marital status on job finding in China. His research team sent fictitious resumes in answer to job advertisements on an online job board, focusing on financial and accounting jobs, and measured the callback rate. The team then varied the gender and marital status on otherwise identical resumes. Their findings showed that, for the Chinese labor market, marital status has no significant effect on finding a job for either gender.
