The Effect of Working Hours on Life Satisfaction

Marion Collewet, CORE

This paper exploits variation in the regular length of the full-time workweek in the German public sector over time and across federal states to identify the effect of weekly working hours on life satisfaction.  The effect found is nonlinear and heterogeneous across demographic groups. We derive labour supply elasticities.
