  1. Note: default specification, see Table 3. Quintile thresholds for 2005–2007 are year specific. Quintile thresholds in the 2009–2010 sample are fixed at 2009 values (in real terms). 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
