Central Europen Centre for Women and Youth in Science
When analysing employment rates by the number of children there is a clear pattern, with employment rates for women decreasing when the number of children increases. In the EU25 in 2003, the employment rates for women aged 20 to 49 fell from 65% with one child under 12, to 58% with two, and to 41% with three children or more. For men in the EU25 the employment rates were 91%, 92% and 86% respectively.
