Francesca della Ratta, Eugenia De Rosa, Elisa Marzilli, Maria Elena Pontecorvo


Traditional individual employment and unemployment indicators don’t allow to show different degrees of family disadvantage or risk of exclusion from the labour market, which may vary a lot considering the employment status of all household adult members. The presence of unemployed or inactive people and/or precarious jobs within the family can be faced differently if one or more components can still rely on a `guaranteed job´, while conversely redundancy of one of the member can cause more difficulties if others have a precarious job or are unemployed too. Using labour force data the article shows changes in the distribution of work in Italy at households level.
