Abstract

From the 1980s to the late 1990s, South Korea experienced a remarkable economic boom. The outbreak of the Asian financial crisis in late 1997 brought an interruption in these developments. It was only after 2002 that the country regained its economic growth. This study examines how women‟s labor force return after childbirth (with and without career interruption) varied before, during and after the crisis. Logistic and hazard regression models were applied to the Korea Labor and Income Panel Study (KLIPS waves 1-10). The study reveals an increase in women‟s post-birth work return without career interruption since the 1980s. The Asian financial crisis boosted the immediate return pattern. Women‟s own human capital accumulation and the implementation of job-protected maternity leave further contributed to this pattern. Women who underwent career interruption were also more likely to re-enter the labor market during and after the crisis than before
