Abstract

Using Portuguese parish data from 1675-1925, we estimate the effect of a mother’s labour force participation (FLFP) on that of her daughter. We adapt a methodology to avoid bias coming from potential non-random missing data which affects our historical data. We document the existence of a large effect of a mother’s FLFP on that of her daughter long before technological and cultural changes took place. Our finding of this early and large intergeneration link, which acts as a potent catalyst of shocks, contributes to the understanding of the long-term dynamics of FLFP.
