  1. Note: The “extended” sample of employee includes people who reported working as an employee 12 and/or 11 months prior to the month of the interview. Quintile thresholds for 2005–2007 are year specific. Quintile thresholds fixed at 2009 values (in real terms) in the 2009–2010 sample. Top of the table: std errors in parentheses; ***p < 0.01, **p < 0.05, *p < 0.1. Base controls: female dummy; share of time worked part-time in the last 12 months; education and age dummies; permanent contract dummy; reported years of work experience; poor health status dummy; partner dummy for women and for men; and number of children aged 0–1, aged 1–5 and aged 6 and over. See text and Section 6.1 in the Appendix for more details on the construction of variables. Tests on coefficients: p values reported; p values in italics indicate that the test cannot be rejected at the 10 % significance level; small p values were rounded up to 0.001
